December Girl

Nicola Cassidy

This is a gorgeous, emotive read. Nicola Cassidy has a distinctive voice and a huge talent for descriptive writing – of events, setting and, especially, emotions. The structure of the story doesn't quite work and I feel the author has been let down by the publisher's editorial input. But don't let that put you off: this is a wonderful read from an emerging novelist who is destined to become one of Ireland's best-regarded writers.
