Sabrina is a girl torn between love and duty in pre
WW1 Ireland. While Sabrina and her siblings have many dreams for their
futures, it is "the Mama " who holds the cards and deals their hands,
one for the land, one for a wife, two for the church etc etc.
I did like this but I didn't love it. I won't say its depressing exactly, but it is
frustrating, so be warned. And yet I can see why a lot of people
really love this story, the plot is excellent and really holds a lot of
For those who care, yes, there is a HEA but it came
at a point where I had been frustrated for so long I was like,
"whatever. good. I don't care anymore."
In saying that, I think
it would make a pretty good movie if it didn't dwell too much on the
nunnery (which was probably the biggest "Nooooooo!!!"" of the book) and
if it allowed us a few more tender moments. I think Sabrina and Gerrard
had great chemistry and I wanted to see them together more.
