I got more lovely reviews this week from NetGalley readers.

My Heart Went Walking by S. Hanan, published by Fire Drinking Publishing, is the gripping story of two sisters. Set in the 1980ies in Ireland it’s an Irish tale of love, loss and redemption. I read the blurb and was intrigued, and what can I say, this book blew me away; gripped me with both hands; had me from the start, hook, line and sinker. Una and Ellie are just teenagers when their lives change dramatically. Every one of them has her own drama, tragedy, redemption. MHWW is a slow burn with just the right amount of everything, gave me all the feels, let me so easily connect with the characters. I love this unique story, I love the pace, I love the writing, 5 stars.

A women’s fiction story that is so well written and real. I still can’t believe I was granted the opportunity to read. So for that chance, thank you!

What a very pleasant trip into Ireland of the ‘80s. It’s the story of two sisters, Una and Ellie, and the ups and downs — pretty serious downs — of their lives. It’s a story of decisions and their consequences, love, forgiveness, and hope. The storytelling is superb, and the writing is superior. Ms Hanan, I will most definitely read everything you write in the future. Thank you to NetGalley for the opportunity to read and review My Heart Went Walking. I enjoyed it immensely.
