Third Party Reviews of A Parachute in the Lime Tree

  • Book: A Parachute in the Lime Tree
  • Location: Berlin, Brittany, Ireland
  • Author: Annemarie Neary



Extracts from third party reviews:

“Neary’s work is a delightful read. She plays language like an instrument, lilting Irish brogue singing out in a way that never slips over into parody, and a personification of the place and the weather that has a poet’s touch.”
The Bookbag (UK)

“There are so many things to praise here. Neary writes from different narrative perspectives, so we get right inside the heads of each character. She does this effortlessly, switching from character to character with elegant ease. And she can write. This is a literary novel. Beautiful descriptions fill each page.”
Words with Jam (UK)

“These atrocities provide the context for the web of sweet — and sometimes bittersweet — love stories that A Parachute in the Lime Tree weaves…empathetic romance.”
Irish Independent (Ireland)

“Tense and edgy, beautifully written. I wouldn’t be surprised if it gets nominated for a handful of prizes..”
Books Monthly (UK)

“The atmosphere, tense and lean, feels hauntingly real, and undercurrents of deep emotion run beneath the surface.”
Reading the Past (US)

“an enjoyable read set in a chapter of Irish history which is little known to English readers.”
Historical Novels Review (UK)
