But this class has its own special quality - as the focus for the varied hopes and dreams of teacher and pupils alike.

This book was quite enjoyable. I t delves into the lives of a group of Dubliners who are taking Italian evening classes at Mountainview, a local secondary school. For most of the book, a section is dedicated to some of the students of the class, who range from the teachers, Mr. Aidan Dunne and Nora ''Signora'' O' Donaughue, to a very wealthy woman, Connie, who wants to gain a new purpose after a shattered marriage. The final chapter is based on the group's trip to Italy at the end of the course.
I find this to be a very intriguing novel - I think that many people will be able to relate to the characters in one way or another. A definite page-turner with cliffhangers... : P
