‘The Importance of Being Aisling’ is the latest book by writing duo Emer McLysaght and Sarah Breen.
Job. Flat. Boyfriend. Tick. Tick. Tick. Aisling (seems) to be winning at life. But life has other ideas.
Fired. Homeless. Dumped. Tick. Tick. Tick. When everything comes crashing down around her, moving back in with her mam seems like a disaster. But might returning to her roots provide the answers Aisling’s looking for?
Aisling is back with another tale of drama, wit and Irish charm.
After the sadness and upheaval from the first book, our favourite Irish lass is back with more drama.
When she’s let go from her sensible and secure job and suddenly single, Aisling is in limbo and unsure what to do, so she returns home to her Mam to try to figure what she wants to do next with her life. With new developments afoot in the town, Aisling decides to take the bull by the horns and fulfil a dream of opening a new cafe that will offer brunch, like the cafes do in Dublin. But, Aisling’s life is never straightforward and she finds herself embarking on new friendships, dramas and award winning sausages along the way.
I’ve grown to love Aisling, as I’ve come to the conclusion that there’s a little bit of Aisling in all of us. Although, there is no denying that the books are hilarious, filled with one-liners and situations that will leave the reader in stitches, there are quite a few sad and heartbreaking moments as well that really did take me a back and even whisper “oh no” at one stage.
The characters are relatable and the situations are believable, at some in everyone’s life, we’ve questioned where we are in our lives and where we want to be next and I found myself really on the same journey as Aisling.
‘The Importance of Being Aisling’ is a deliciously fun and uplifting story, filled with Irish warmth and charm throughout, this book is the perfect escapism from real life.
