Mr. Flood's Last Resort
Mr. Flood’s Last Resort. Protagonist Maud Drennan works as a caregiver and in her reality saints of the past are participants in her daily life. Her latest case brings her to the gothic home of a hoarder, Cathal Flood. Maud is the latest in a series of caregivers, all of whom Mr. Flood has shunned. Kidd draws these characters with skill and insight and lets us wince and smile as their lives play out. The saints are close by the sinners, and patient readers can watch grace enter the lives of these eccentric characters. In many fine works of fiction things are not as they appear, and I found myself giving Kidd full suspension of my disbelief as she works her literary magic.
