Commentary
Máirín Martin, review of A Long Stem Rose (Poolbeg 1995), in Books Ireland (March 1996), p.57; the novel concerns an Irish woman with a husband and children, managing chateau-cum-hotel in France who is pining for a woman in Belfast (apparently a ‘lost love’); rude awakening on flying visit to Belfast; considered unconvincing.
