Reviews

"A moving tale of love, angst and Irish superstition."--Associated Press

"With its memorable characters and variety of adventures, [Frank] Delaney's brand of Irish fabulism is . . . a delight to read. [The Matchmaker of Kenmare] burnishes this veteran writer's reputation as a consummate storyteller."--Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

"Engrossing . . . Delaney again unspools a fine yarn, while providing substantive insights into history and human nature."--The Star-Ledger

"Panoramic . . . Delaney spins an exciting yarn of romance and intrigue, and in Kate, he has created an indomitable, unforgettable character."--Publishers Weekly

"Irish storytelling at its best."--Library Journal
