This was so great I wanted to go on to the next in the series. I couldn't get it. If you are going to read this get the next one at the same time you will certainly want to keep reading the series.
Truly enjoyed this book. It is one in a series of 4 and I am excited to begin the second. Don't miss reading the prologue as it is essential to the storyline.
The rich irish heritage and history is fascinating and the characters are engaging.
Wonderful-as are all Thoenes' books. I love their historical writing!
The Galway Chronicles
The village is in sore need of a miracle. Struggling under grinding poverty & a greedy landlord. Ballynockanor is a story of a thousand Irish villages where an English usurper is despised by his Irish tenants
Fabulous book but I have two copies! This is a story about Ireland during the "Great Hunger" and the people who helped and survived. It is a love story on many levels. The series is a must read. The series defined Irish history and the "Gorta Mor" like nothing I have ever read. The writing is emotionally powerful, incredibly skilled and intelligent in presentation. It is brim full of their evident passion for the people and the times they portray. Brock and Bodie Thoene are authors for our time! Fifty years from now people will still be reading and marveling over their work. They are the best historical novelists of their generation.
