Pickpick

So this has been on TBR list for a year or so, and have to say was worth the read. It was easy to follow and the story was a compelling story and worth the read, you couldn't help but root for the main character Sgt. PJ and his many troubles

This book is all about the priesthood, specifically child abuse in the Catholic Church.

Repost for @Andrew65 :

This is the schedule for the discussion points for the #MaeveBinchyBuddyRead that starts tomorrow. At 544 pages in the paperback copy been tricky to split into sections because of long chapters. Sometimes 2 chapters too short, and three chapters too long so split into six sections.

Everyone welcome to join us, this is a standalone.

Been a lot of years since I read it but remember this as a favourite Binchy! 😍

Andrew65 Thanks for reposting 👏😍😊 1d

#MaeveBinchyBuddyRead #HeartAndSoul

Discussion of Prologue, Chapter 1 - 2

Question 5 of 5

ljuliel I like this one much better than the last. Much easier to keep track of the characters the way it‘s written. Mostly likeable characters, with a couple of bad guys you hope will get their comeuppance. 2d
TheBookHippie I so love this book. Brings me back to training new nurses and fighting for better lives for my residents. Hard to believe I left nursing 13 years ago already. I missed reading Mauve. Glad to be back . 1d
EadieB This book is one of my favorites and I‘m glad to be back reading it again! (edited) 1d

Discussion of Prologue, Chapter 1 - 2

Question 4 of 5

ljuliel They‘re puzzling too , as Declan seems like he gets along with them, but is also frustrated with them at times. I think they really care about him , but maybe he feels he‘s not getting the proper backup support ? I don‘t think they realize they‘re doing anything wrong. They‘re just ordinary folks so I don‘t think they mean any harm. 2d
EadieB I think his mom is a little crazy about fixing up the kitchen etc before Fiona can come to dinner. 1d

Question 3 of 5

ljuliel He sounds like a sweetheart. I don‘t know any real life doctors that‘d be quite as willing to spend the time with patients and the behind the scenes setting things up, but maybe life in other countries is different. He seems a good guy and a Fiona seems like a really sweet girl. 2d
TheBookHippie 🤷🏽‍♀️ I‘ve no grasp on this yet. Such a cynic I am .. but so far so good. I like him. Not sure what twist may lay ahead. It‘s so early 🤣 (edited) 1d
EadieB Declan is a definite good guy and I love Fiona so they would make a good couple. 1d

Discussion of Prologue, Chapter 1 - 2

Question 2 of 5

ljuliel That one was a bit of a puzzlement for me. In the beginning, I was wondering if she still had feelings for him and was holding onto him by not granting a divorce. I myself wouldn‘t put up with his cheating shenanigans. He‘d gladly have the divorce from me. Why she‘d want him back when he cheated on her and now has this new young girl situation. It‘s hard to read Clara. She comes across as mostly business. 2d
TheBookHippie Make him suffer never works. Just be done. Wish him well go in peace. He seems like a snake to me. She more of worried about failure than about him or her marriage 🤷🏽‍♀️ (edited) 1d
EadieB Definitely need to let him go! That is a no-brainer! 1d

Discussion of Prologue, Chapter 1 - 2

Question 1 of 5

ljuliel I think you‘d almost have to live in the area to know what‘s best for your hospital. I know small hospitals ( here) are closing down and being bought out by bigger ones, which leave large gaps of areas that have to drive long distances to get health care. As long as the money would go to the hospital in some form, it‘d be good. (edited) 2d
TheBookHippie I‘ve seen this done well where some is sold to non profits or fair trades and housing is also included. Funnelling money locally is always a good answer. Especially in this case for healthcare that‘s decent. 1d
EadieB The more houses you build, the more medical services you will need so it is a good idea to use the money this way. 1d
