A lovely book. It takes you back to when you were young and beginning to think about falling in love. Ireland may not be your background, but the feelings of guilt, embarrassment, shame and glory are just the same. Read this book and as you do, remember what it was like to be thirteen.
Gerry dances only once with Pauline, towards the end of the evening, to pay her back for her boldness during the day. She is furious but she smiles her sweetest smile and waves. 'See you tomorrow. Same time same place!'
