The Parting Glass book. I was a little disappointed in this one - I have read a couple of other Emilie Richards books and really liked them.

The Parting Glass book. I found this one slow in some parts, unrealistic in others, and sappy throughout. Not ready to give up on her yet, but this one let me down.

The Parting Glass Текст. Автор:Emilie Richards. Winston, Josh, Tarek and all the other kids in the pew, were part of Brick. And can they tell stories. The trip from Pittsburgh’s worth a book. One Brick at a Time had started out as a bunch of neighborhood pre-adolescents watching Niccolo renovate an old house in Ohio City, and now it was a chartered nonprofit organization that taught basic carpentry and plumbing skills, and remodeled old houses. Maybe the Italians and the Irish are cousins under the skin? They’re going to get along with everybody.

The Parting Glass has a lot of the features that I love about Emilie Richards' novels: very interesting, complex characters, plots that are not necessarily routine, and a chance to explore a culture or part of history that I'm not very familiar with.

I'm always annoyed by books that are more a set of short stories strung together, jumping from one to the next in each chapter (think Debbie MacComber) rather than one fully developed story that really lets me get to know the characters. This novel does jump among the stories of three sisters a bit, but the stories interconnect in a way that's satisfying.

Altogether I really enjoyed this and recommend it.

This is the sequel to Whiskey Island and revisits the lives of the 3 Donaghue sisters. The book focuses primarily on Megan, who is about to get married to Niccolo, a former priest, and Peggy, the youngest sister, who has a son with signs of autism. At the wedding reception at their saloon, a freak tornado causes the guests to be trapped. Their father is able to lead them out through some secret tunnels from the Prohibition era. The remainder of book deals with the rebuilding of the saloon and the challenges in Megan and Nick's marriage. The other primary story is Peggy's journey to Ireland to care for a distant relation while giving her son a supportive environment to work on his autistic behavior. Peggy meets a troubled widower who has given up his medical practice, as she has given up med school to care for her son. Interwoven is the historical linking story between the Donaghues and the Tierneys. the sisters end up all together in Ireland and begin to forge some adult-peer relationships with each other. There is some drama, romance and suspense. It was an enjoyable story and I am glad we got to see more of Peggy who was not a major character in the first book. The story was involving and the historical story was fascinating. This was a nice conclusion to the series.

Loved this series and wish there was more, but alas there is only 2 books: This one and its prequel: Whiskey Island - 3 sisters of Irish descent who run an Irish pub in Cleveland, with some history of their ancestors. The novel goes from yesteryear to present day effortlessly and the reader looks forward to each segment in the story. I couldn't decide which story was better, the one from yesteryear, or the present-day story of the girls and their families. They're both written equally well, drawing the reader in.

In this one, Parting Glass, much of it takes place in Ireland, where one of the sisters goes to stay with an Aunt that found her on the internet and gets some background of her family while dealing with her son's autism. Definitely recommend reading Whiskey Island first, both are bargain-priced on the Kindle :)

Ms. Richards has such a way of making her characters seem like your old friends and next door neighbors. The color and chaos in every story draw you in from start to finish. I ALWAYS recommend Ms. Richard's books to people who need an uplifting read. I only wish there were MORE!!

this is a follow up book to Whiskey Island and it is quite good. its nice to have returning characters, I especially like the device of going back in time to build the story line.The characters are well drawn and relate-able. I enjoy her books and her storytelling, she takes her time.

Emilie Richards is an incredible author. I love the way she sets her books in different backgrounds and places. I always feel like I'm "there." Her books are a bit slow to start but patience has always paid off because she can weave a combination of stories and characters very successfully. I always feel that I've learned something when I've finished one of her books.

Fell in love with the characters in Whiskey Island and was excited to follow their lives in The Parting Glass. The three sisters and their relationships go in many different directions, but the sisters remain "best friends", full of support and love no matter what happens. When the book ended I immediately wanted to read more about the lives of all three of the women. I hope there are more books coming involving this family!
I loved this book.. the family characters, past and present, give the reader a look at Irish immigrants and Ireland itself, past and present. Family members are believable in the characterizations , to the point where the reader sympathizes with their plights. The information about dealing with an autistic child helps the reader empathize with the mother. All the characters, from main to background, are well done and interesting.
