'A fascinating read' Sunday Independent

'The best in the series so far' Sunday Business Post

'The Other Guinness Girl: A Question of Honour is another splendid and highly enjoyable read from Emily Hourican. Using a mix of fact and fiction, it captures the essence of the 1930s and is immersive in its descriptions. All the individual characters are very much brought to life, encouraging readers to further explore the history of this extraordinary family' Swirl and Thread
