As a regular reader of Jeans' books, this finale was worth the wait. It was full of twists and turns and the unexpected. Set in the Roaring Twenties, Jean also introduces the issues women had back then, when they were considered their husbands property, there was no freedom or liberty for women. Harp is at the forefront and takes great risks as she refuses to conform to what family and society expected of her both in Ireland and in the US. We see her travel as predicted by Henry and she wishes to fulfil the dreams he had for her. The Musical Act, Roaring Liberty, is formed with Harp, John Joe, Jerry, Eliot and Cecilia all members, which causes family issues due to the expectations that Harp would marry. Their act takes them to New York and over to Dublin where they perform. Once again disaster occurs and creates many complications. Then throw in the 'Evil Ralph' and his lies and deceit, for an added twist and once again Jean has another winner.
