Archeologist Heroine, NFL Playing Hero. She’s looking for an Irish Lost City, He inherits the land she believes it lies beneath. As I wanted to be an archeologist when I was a kid I loved this heroine.
I loved all the secondary characters, especially the village of Killkarten. Even though our Hero was an NFL Player there was very little sportsing, leaving plenty of room for a slew of dysfunctional family dynamics that the story and the time frame gave plenty of space to work through. It was like taking a bunch of Americans and dropping them in Ballykissangel and seeing what happened. Themes of loyalty, death, family, abandonment, “the troubles” and reconciliation were well paced and well handled.
