I loved the fact that this book was set in the 60’s…Flower power and all that! And the author certainly gives you a good insight into what it was like.
Here we meet Solomon, an Irish catholic who takes his values seriously. He is offered a wonderful scholarship in San Francisco and leaves his home town in Ireland and sets of too pastures new. And this is where he meets the lovely Petula, a loving and care free spirit. Meeting Petula and his new friends, Solomon starts to question some of his traditional values and starts seeing life in a new way.
Solomon and Petula have a rocky start to their relationship but the love they so clearly have for each other is very evident in the way the author describes their growing relationship.
I found this book a little hard to read at times and sometimes quite long winded but all in all a good story line and if you’re a softy make sure you have tissues at the end.
