Sarah Broadhurst's view...
A woman gets off a bus and completely disrupts the village she lands in. Full of humour, it touches on alcoholism, infidelity, loss and hope. The style is gentle and charming with real Irish warmth. It is the best thing she has written. In fact, after writing crime capers she has at last found her forte. You may know her as Mrs Doyle in Father Ted or as a comedian, now know her as a novelist for she is well worth trying. A beautiful read.
The Woman on the Bus by Pauline McLynn
The bus from Dublin to Limerick has never meant much to the inhabitants of Kilbrody, until a woman steps off it, marches into the pub and drinks herself into oblivion. When she finally wakes up, several days later, it is to discover that Charlie Finn (who put her to bed); the local garda and indeed the whole village are talking about her. Who is the woman on the bus? The question is, will she tell them?
'For all it's Gaelic gaiety there's a serious message here, and McLynn delivers it wth some style'
