The Matchmaker of Kenmare Summary
"And there's a legend - she had only vague details - that all couples who are meant to marry are connected by an invisible silver cord which is wrapped around their ankles at birth, and in time the matchmaking gods pull those cords tighter and tighter and draw the couple slowly toward one another until they meet." So says Miss Kate Begley, Matchmaker of Kenmare, the enigmatic woman Ben MacCarthy meets in the summer of 1943.
The Matchmaker of Kenmare Reviews
"Though the novel's leisurely pace is at odds with the wartime plot... Delaney wrings the pulp out of a Jack Higginslike premise and turns it into something more satisfyingly literary." - Publishers Weekly
