(...) this touching and intricate story will give back as much as you put in.' The Irish Mail on Sunday 'A warm, engaging read' Woman's Way Praise for Roisin Meaney : Meaney weaves wonderful, feelgood tales of a consistently high standard. And that standard rises with each book she writes. Irish Examiner 'The Last Week of May is a highly engaging and heartwarming tale populated with warm and loveable characters. Roisin Meaney's gentle storytelling is reminiscent of that of Maeve Binchy. I truly adored the book and devoured it within a few short hours.' Melissa Hill 'Keenly observed and beautifully told. Lots of writers are compared to Binchy but Meaney really is ... Buy it now and put it in the beach bag.' Irish Independent Review The plot will draw you in; and there is both laughter and tears along the way. Meaney is an accomplished storyteller. Books Ireland A heart-warming story ... that readers are bound to devour Irish Independent
