by Mary Kate Brogan

Set in Ireland during the 1950's, Morna captured my attention from the opening paragraph. The story centres on the life of Morna, a young girl growing up in a small Catholic town where religion is part of life and where priests are committed to celibacy. When she falls in love with a young man destined for priesthood, Morna struggles to find happiness elsewhere but cannot escape the lure of forbidden love.

The characters are well-drawn, the dialogue true to life. The plot moves at a good pace, making it one of those rare books I found hard to put down. I look forward to seeing more from this talented author.
