Set in suburban Dublin in1953, Kitty’s Hive explores a diverse cast of characters; the fragile Alphonsus, endearing young Danny, his bullying sisters, and even Kitty’s irascible father, Sean Lynch. Kitty’s husband, Thomas, adds friction to the mix, and when the investigating Sergeant Hennessy eyes the family’s maid with more than a professional scrutiny, mayhem ensues and Kitty must deal with it all.
Kitty's Hive ... rich with the compelling and often complex themes, ... (and) ... a cultural guide to the mores, customs, clothing, housekeeping practices, and idiomatic language of the time. ...Mary McWay Seaman. May 2013 edition of The Celtic Connection, Denver
