Book Review -- "Darling Jim" by Christian Moerk

"Fiona Walsh thought her family’s secrets would follow her to her grave, but when her diary is found by a young postman, Niall, the truth about her untimely demise—and that of her sister and aunt—begins to see the light of day. It’s the most tragic love story he’s ever heard."

It's a story within a story within a story, and it's one of the best I've read in a while.

When a woman is found to have been keeping her two nieces captive in her home, and all three die a violent death, all hell breaks loose in their small Irish town. Their story is told via two diaries kept by the two girls, a fired postman, and an ancient tale woven from Celtic legend. It's unlike anything I've ever read, and I highly, enthusiastically, recommend it.
