SUMMARY ¸ The Girl on the Cliff From the author of the #1 international bestseller The Orchid House the mesmerizing story of two Irish families entangled by a tragic past that seems destined to repeat itself To escape a recent heartbreak in New York Grania Ryan returns to her family home on the rugged wind swept coast of Ireland Here on the cliff edge in the middle of a storm she meets a young girl Aurora Lisle who will profoundly change her lifeDe. I cannot really share all the excitement of the other reviews It s not like I didn t like the book I just think it was overly dramatic at times tended to be a little too unrealistic sometimes and was just very sentimental Moreover I think that the character of Aurora was just completely unauthentic I could not connect to her at all Even though she was supposed to be an old soul her thoughts were way to mature with the author desperately trying to make her sound like a child At times I think the development of relationships characters moved way too fast Granias family pretty much adopting a strange child that her mother had a lot of reservations against in the beginning is very unbelievable Also the whole Aurora suddenly calls everyone mummygrandmauncle etc part was just really annoying for me The author kind of overdid that by calling Grania mummy in pretty much every sentence Aurora uttered While in the beginning I thought that this book might get really interesting especially with the whole issue of Aurora sleepwalking to the cliffs trying to get into her mothers room and having bad dreams the issue is dissolved very easily though She just stops having bad dreams And that s the end of it Grania is her salvation from everything bad in the world Yeah right The story of Granias great grandmother Mary her grandmother Sophia and aunt Anna was definitely the highlight of the book and a lot interesting I wish we ve had even on the relationship between Kathleen and Lily and even on Anna But then i was really disappointed in the end when it just turned and unbelievable which was almost the most painful part to read The Russian revolution and the family of the tsar REALLY Ugh I wanted to put the book down right there But then there were only a few pages left so I kept goingDon t get me wrong I did not dislike the book It just had a few parts that were almost painful to read All in all it was a uick read though something I really just needed right now

SUMMARY ¸ The Girl on the Cliff Int on each new generation Ultimately it will be Aurora whose intuition and spirit may be able to unlock the chains of the pastSweeping from Edwardian England to present day New York from the majestic Irish coast to the crumbling splendor of a legendary London town house The Girl on the Cliff introduces two remarkable women whose uest to understand their past sends them toward a future where love can triumph over los. If you ve never read a Lucinda Riley book don t start with this one I ve read many of her books and have loved them all but I will never recommend this book to anyone It started well I was really enjoying Mary s story Then the first tragedy struck with an unreal and totally unnecessary suicide From that point forward there were several tragedies that were just unbelievable to me I finally thought I was getting a somewhat happy ending when the author kills off yet another key character with no real explanation as to why You don t even know what she died of just that she dies at the age of 16 So I m not sure what was going on in Lucinda s mind when she wrote this I m sure she was trying to communicate something other than tragedy but that s all I got out of it

SUMMARY ¸ The Girl on the Cliff Spite the warnings Grania receives from her mother to be wary of the Lisle family Aurora and Grania forge a close friendship Through a trove of old family letters dating from 1914 Grania begins to learn just how deeply their families' histories are entwined The horrors of World War I the fate of a beautiful foundling child and the irresistible lure of the ballet give rise to a legacy of heartache that leaves its impr. Two and a half stars rounded up I was attracted to this book by elements I typically can t resist a setting on the coast of Ireland multiple time frames from the present back to WWI and decades between two families intricately linked through the generations an old estate home on a cliff above the sea and another mansion in London and a bit of a Gothic flavor with mysterious orphaned children suicide and hints of ghosts This definitely falls in the Kate Morton vein of what I call new Gothic However I found myself often irritated at what I was reading and debated giving up but I wanted to find out how the author was going to bring it all together So I rounded up for being compelling The faults are glaring The story begins on a farm on the Irish coast where Grania Ryan has retreated to the bosom of her family after a heartbreaking miscarriage Grania left her successful career as a sculptor behind in Manhattan along with her boyfriend Matt whom she had refused to marry but was supposedly deeply in love with Why she so precipitously ran away leaving Matt begging her to explain what he d done wrong is one of the little mysteries left until the end It turns out to be an overheard remark that made me think so what and made the whole escapade upon which the book turned to be nothing but a ludicrous ploy A simple uestion and answer would have cleared up the whole thing which was hardly incriminating to begin with but no Grania says the relationship is over she ll never forgive him blah blah blah In Ireland Grania becomes involved with a motherless eight year old girl Aurora who lives in the manor house on the cliff the home of the Lisle family In doing so she echoes the choices of her great grandmother Mary who also took on the care of a child in the Lisle family And thus the generational stories begin Both Grania and Mary are portrayed idealistically as nurturing mothers who will do anything to care for and protect their wards That Grania would wholeheartedly sacrifice her former life and career after only being a nanny to Aurora for a month seems unrealistic but that is only one of a continuous stream of implausibilities that mar this story beginning with the one mentioned above Another glaring one is the heretofore unknown existence of Grania s uncle In fact for a close knit Irish clan who has lived in the same village for at least a hundred years Grania seems to know nothing of her mother s family s story and their connection to the Lisles Surely in her years growing up she would have seen family photographs or heard stories in the local village One would think The author goes in for high melodrama and we can see from the beginning what the situation with Aurora s handsome father is though for the purposes of the plot Grania is totally blind to it In fact Grania is aggravatingly clueless about everything and stubbornly intends to stay that way That only works for creating the need to know for the reader but is totally contrivedAnother irritating aspect of this book is the dialogue Matt the preppy son of a successful New York financial investor raised in ritzy Connecticut and used to an uptown lifestyle doesn t in the least talk like a hip Manhattanite And it set my teeth on edge that in nearly every sentence he speaks to Grania he calls her an endearment like baby or honey The fact that Matt who has a doctorate in child psychology is totally clueless to the manipulations of his one time girlfriend Charley is another silly inconsistency Not to mention that by his mid thirties he holds a departmental chair at Columbia Or that he would consider giving up the job he loves and the position he worked hard to attain for the lucrative family investment business because his girlfriend got pregnant You might as well suspend all disbelief that this book corresponds remotely to the real worldAurora the eight year old girl on the cliff narrates introductory segments of the story and well this is confusing at best and maudlin at worst She is another contrived character that rounds out this cast of caricatures Maybe I need to round down to two stars This was not worth the time it took to read the 400 odd pages
