The Month of Borrowed Dreams is now out

The Month of Borrowed Dreams is the fifth entry in the author’s series set in Ireland. A sixth book is also forthcoming in 2022.

I have not read the other titles in the series. I do think that I will go back and read them. In any event, it took me a little while to sort out the characters, something that long term readers probably will not have to do.

These folks who came to life include Hanna, Jazz, Louise, Aideen, Eileen, Mary and Saira as some of the main female characters. There are also the men in their lives and Rasher, a homeless young man whose life is hopefully turning around.

To be brief, Hanna is a librarian who returned to the peninsula with Jazz when her marriage broke up. Her mother Mary lives in the town. Jazz works for her grandmother Louise is an ethically sourced company. Aideen and Eileen are planning their weddings to brothers but the ways in which each wants to acknowledge the day are very different. Saira works with Rasher and is a wise counselor.

As librarian, Hanna has started a film club linked to novels. One of her choices is Colm Toibin’s Brooklyn. Readers who have not already read Brooklyn may well want to by the time that they finish the novel.

The Month of Borrowed Dreams is a gently paced story of people’s lives. I think that it will be enjoyed by those who like the novels of Maeve Binchy.

Many thanks to NetGalley and the publisher. All opinions are my own.

I love to read, recommend books and open the world of reading to others. I tutor to ensure that the next generation of readers will know the joys of a good book because their reading skills have improved. I am an avid reader, especially of mysteries and fiction. I believe that two of the world's greatest inventions were the public library and eyeglasses!
