Me and My Sisters, Sinead Moriarty, book reviewSinead Moriarty is one of my very favourite authors and I have absolutely loved all of her books. Her stories are mainly set in Ireland and feature honest vibrant characters and enthralling story lines. She very much focuses on family and relationships and what it is like to be a modern woman. This is exactly the case with her latest book, Me and My Sisters which I found to be a truly wonderful read.

The book focuses on three sisters (all aged between late thirties and early forties) who have totally different views on life. Julie is a harassed mum of four boys (including triplets!) she is literally just trying to make it through each day.

From Here to Maternity by Sinead Moriarty, book reviewI had already read ‘The Baby Trail‘ and ‘Perfect Match‘ by Sinead Moriarty where she tells of James and Emma Hamilton’s quest to start a family. In those two books they go through unsuccessful fertility treatment and then the lengthy process of trying to adopt a child. In this third book – From Here to Maternity – we find them with their newly adopted son Yuri, and also discover that now she has given up trying, Emma is actually pregnant! Having enjoyed the other two books very much, I was very keen to read this one although I also had a worrying niggle that, like many sequels, it would not live up to my expectations. In fact could this be one book too many about this likeable couple? I have to admit that I did not get into this book quite as easily as the other two, but by the end of it I realised that I had thoroughly enjoyed it – as much as the other two!

A Perfect Match by Sinead Moriarty, book reviewSinead Moriarty is one of my favourite Irish writers and the book that sold me on her writing, which I read a while ago, was The Baby Trail. In this book we met the character Emma Hamilton who was desperately trying to become pregnant without any luck. It was a book that was equally funny and moving, and I just loved reading it. Therefore I was delighted to discover that Sinead Moriarty had written two more books about Emma and her husband James. The next book was A Perfect Match, which I am reviewing here, and this one follows the couple on their quest to adopt a child.

At the start of A Perfect Match, Emma and James are just about to embark on the adoption process.

The Baby Trail, Sinead Moriarty, book reviewJust lately I seem to be stumbling across a number of wonderful Irish writers and I’ve just discovered another one – Sinead Moriarty! I have just read The Baby Trail which I believe was her first book and is also the first in a series about a young couple – Emma and James Hamilton – and their quest to have a baby. I found it was a brilliant read from cover to cover and it was the sort of book that I really did not want to put down.

The subject matter is really quite sensitive as anyone who is trying for a baby will soon tell you.

Pieces of My Heart by Sinead Moriarty, book reviewYou might think after reading just a few pages of ‘Pieces of My Heart‘ by Sinead Moriarty that it is going to be a light easy read typical of much chic lit. However, do not be deceived as this book is anything but that. It does have its moments of light relief but it is a heart-felt emotional read that tackles the serious issue of eating disorders and it definitely had me in tears more than once!

The story centres on the Mullen family. Paul and Ava are both pretty successful, running their own pub and party business respectively. They have two teenage daughters – Ali, clever, hard working and co-operative, and Sarah, outspoken and confident.

In My Sister's Shoes by Sinead MoriartyI recently read The Baby Trail by Sinead Moriarty and absolutely loved it so it was not surprising that I could not wait to get my hands on another of her books. The one I chose was In My Sister’s Shoes which, in my opinion was even better. It was the sort of book that once I had started reading it; I could hardly put it down. In fact I read it in the space of two days which, considering I have two young daughters is some going!

The story follows two sisters – Kate and Fiona. Kate is just embarking on a potentially successful TV presenting career and has left the family home in Dublin to seek her fortune in London.
