    1. I absolutely loved this book Extremely pleased to have bought it for 10p from the library, I also feel quite sad that nobody else will borrow it from the library and enjoy it as I have done.It s so hard to decide who is my favourite character Robert, the kind hearted painter who prefers his own company and who, despite being admired by many people around him, always sems to think the worst of himself , the strong minded Angela, always helping others, never asking for anything herself and confuse [...]

    2. I used to read many books like this when I was doing my research for my PhD I wrote my thesis about William Kennedy, an Irish American author, and on the side I read a lot of Irish novels I remember enjoying Involved by Kate O Riordan too The Angel In The House is typical in this regard After all that reading, my conclusion was that the suffocating power of the family and matriarchal figures was a key topic This is so too, here, in the form of a group of Aunts who in a way decide for Angela that [...]

    3. I shall endeavour to refrain any gushing remarks of how wonderful this book is but its tough An excellent read Its warm, quaint and full of Irish humour The female protagonist s vocation always leads to people wondering about sex particularly when the female in question is beautiful which is usually a clich But this book is well written enough without all the silly innuendos that usually accompany books about people of the church that you can t associate it with the trash that s out there I felt [...]

    4. This is a weird little book soulmates kept apart by shyness at first and misunderstandings later In this instance she is a nun, nearly her full profession keeps being postponed by the wise senior As if falling in love is not enough of a problem for desperate to fulfil her vocation Angela, she has a set of mad aunts, an mute agoraphobic uncle and too personal an interest in one of her clients who has his own family problems Doesn t sound as if it turns out well, does it No spoilers here, read it [...]

    5. Alle haben darauf gewartet, dass Robert sich endlich verliebt Seine Mutter Bonnie, seine Freunde Peter und Anita und allen voran er selbst Jetzt ist es geschehen Angela mit ihrem kurzen schwarzen Haar und dem charmanten irischen Akzent verk rpert alles, was sich der sch chterne Londoner Restaurator ertr umt hat Anscheinend geht es ihr genauso, aber dann mischen sich Freunde, Bekannte und Verwandte ein und vom ersten Rendezvous an l uft alles schief

    6. Think you might need to have Irish Catholic roots to laugh out loud at this one Left me slightly bemused
