    uite a good book actually I will admit it took me about 80 pages to get into but once you get all the characters sorted and know who is who it just gets better and better It is actually two stories in one current day and the other about 100 years in the past I loved both stories but probably enjoyed the story 100 years previous better maybe only because i do love that sort of story I do recommend will probably take than a weekend read as it's close to 500 pages but it has everything in it to keep you interested and draws you in to both stories Extremely well written and entwined

    Jane Eyre is my all time favorite classic book Whiskey Island is my all time favorite non classic book I generally do not like to re read books Once I know the story I can't find the patience to read through it all again This story for some reason is an exception I think I've read it three times each time I fell in love with it The characters are so well thought out and the story lines so fantastically woven together It is perfection in my mind

    Women's fiction is not romance There are formulas for both types of books but they should not be lumped together Romances ultimately are about love and marriage Women's fiction usually include romance but the growth of the women characters is very importantEmilie Richards has written a wonderful novel There is definitely some happily ever aspects to the story however there is much There is the history of parts of Cleveland there is lots of information about Irish American and then there is the way that the three sisters grow and mature All in all Richards has written exactly what I expect from women's fiction or a family sagaReaders of those two types of books will be most happy with Richard's book Readers of historical fiction will have to be willing to deal with the romance; romance readers will have to deal with all the personal growth and literary readers may not want to have their novel tied up so neatly at the endBut if you want a fun read well written that you can fall into and stay for awhile I highly recommend Whiskey Island

    I absolutely loved this novel about an intergenerational Irish family growing up in the Whiskey Island neighborhood of Cleveland Ohio The characterizations of the Donaghue girls Megan Casey and Peggy as well as their love interests Niccolo Andreati and Jon Kovats were very strong as well as those of Lena Tierney and the priest who took her in when she was being abused by her employer James Simeon This is not a short book 507 pages but the chapters were relatively short and very engaging I bought two of Emilie Richards' novels at a big box store and look forward to reading them and enjoying them as much as I did this one

    Thoroughly enjoyed this book Still thinking about it after Two books in this series Whiskey Island is the first one and The Parting Glass is the second one Really need to be read in order Pretty uick light read a tad long but left you wanting to know about the characters Background of one immigrants current and past relatives and their struggles You'll love most of the characters

    The best Emilie Richards that I have read The Irish Donague family is followed both in the 1800s through a priests journal and also in current day The characters are amazing hardworking people but not without failings The depictions of 1800s Irish immigrants was believable as it was heart wrenching The present day Donague family are also interesting to follow One of those books that you don't want to end

    While this book was uite slow at times I did end up liking this novel of one family holding together in present time and learning of their strong heritage from past

    SPOILER Don't read this if you don't like spoilers This is not a review I write these as notes to myself to keep track of what I have readI read this because I liked the first Goddesses Anonymous book and reviews of this one were positive I also was intrigued to read something based in Cleveland my hometown There was a good amount of historical narrative around Irish immigrants in Cleveland along the lakefront The descriptions of poverty were harrowing including the powerlessness of poor women The part of the plot about the abuse of a main character by her horrible evil boss was hard to read But he gets taken care of by his victim I am okay with the romance aspects of this author It is a pleasant change to read about good men and know that the couples will be fine in the endNext I will read the next in the Goddesses series

    Lake Erie's Irish community of Whiskey Island used to be a shanty town dependent on the coalsteel barons This is a complicated story starting with 3 sisters descendants of two of these Irish immigrants The oldest Megan still runs the family saloon A series of incidents bring her sisters back to Whiskey Island saloon Some things that start happening cause them and their friends to probe her ancestors history to fin their secrets The old parish priest left a journal now being transcribed by an ex priest who's unwittingly drawn into the sister's lives An unwanted pregnancy is tied to a current pregnancy Well done very long Really draws you into the history of the area and the Irish immigrants and how their faith has been passed on

    As a former Clevelander I enjoyed reading about modern day and 19th Century Cleveland I still need to research the real Whiskey Island and find out what was real and what was fiction I preferred the parts of the novel that took place in the 19th Century and wished those parts were longer rather than the focus being on the modern day I also liked how it showed the Catholic priesthood in a good light Certainly the priesthood deserves the criticism it receives based on decades of covering up sexual abuse However many good men have been priests and provided counsel and support to their parishoners and it was nice to be reminded
