Praise for Anne’s work:

When All Is Said catches a world in a moment. Maurice Hannigan is a wonderful invention, whose bitter-sweet meditations will stay long in the reader’s mind. Anne Griffin has fashioned a rare jewel.”

“Beautiful. Tearful. Aching and lyrical. So simply and beautifully told.”

An extraordinary novel, a poetic writer, and a story that moved me to tears.

Beautifully written, unhurried and thoughtful, and a character you love from the off.
