Book Review of The Linen Queen: A Novel

The Linen Queen: A Novel
BettySunshine avatar reviewed on + 30 more book reviews

I enjoyed this book more than I thought I would. Sheila, the Linen Queen, seems to be in love with two men at the same time. Joel is an American military officer who offers her the "out" she has been looking for -- marriage and a ticket out of Northern Ireland. But then there is her childhood friend Gavin who captains a ship. How does she get what she wants without hurting those she loves? We read this for our book club and the author called to chat with us. She was delightful! She gave us a lot of the historical background. Lovely lady!
