Lia Carrer is an aspiring historian hoping to complete her dissertation on medieval Languedoc, but she's also grieving the loss of her husband. She hopes to find some sense of peace in France, but she soon finds herself embroiled with three men, each of whom has a connection to Lia and her research. An interesting read, one that I wish had been slightly more compelling, but still a good book.

Likely, this book is a worthy enough read for those that are attracted to romance novels, one with an addiction motif to add the requisite complications, and expressive setting detail. To me though, it is drawn out, and employs a disappointingly weak eco-lit premise. I guess I was expecting too much.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. The characters fascinated me from the initial introduction of their flawed personalities. Their flaws developed into interesting and loving individuals I that I found myself caring for more as I continued to read the book. The description of the countryside also provided an interesting perspective and depth to the story. I would read again.

I think this is simply not the book for me. I only got about 60 pages in, but it wasn't grabbing me. The book creates a wonderful sense of Ireland, a place I know and love, and it's quite romantic. The prose is prettily flowery with loads of wonderful adjectives. I think I just felt like I knew exactly where the story was going as soon as I hit Chapter 2 -- I skipped ahead and I was mostly right.

Apart from the predictability, I also felt like the dialogue was odd. At one point, her AA sponsor says to Annie, "Time to fly?" She responds, "'Yes.' Her eyes welled with tears. 'Just look at me go.'" End chapter. That struck me as a bit silly. Who says that seriously? It just doesn't feel like a real human interaction.

All that aside, I think people who enjoy a good nostalgic and slightly mystical read will really enjoy "The Crows of Beara."
