    Well Written Irish Historical Novel

    In 1846 why would anyone choose to leave a wealthy home in Ohio, USA to visit potato blight infested, oppressed, and suffering Ireland? For some reason Valentia McDowell is drawn there with the thought of finding family roots, a family brooch and whatever it is that compels her to begin the quest. This novel is well researched and filled with considerable historical insight, local color, and information about Ireland during this traumatic period in its history. The tone of the book is in keeping with the era it refers to and a lot of thought and effort was definitely put into the writing and editing of the story. I have to say that I never really warmed up to Valentia and felt that the rather abrupt ending of the book left me wondering a great deal about her and what, if anything, happened in her life to validate the many losses experienced during her quest. Perhaps this will be revealed in future books of the series. Thank you to the author for the copy of this book to read and review.

    My overall impression is given above

    One of the worst books I've read in ages. In fact, it was so bad I actually could not bring myself to finish it. It might possibly be suited for a preteen since it read as if it was written by a 10 year old.

    Great read, good book!

    What a wonderful journey. I have truly enjoyed this romp through Ireland and the past story of the plight of the people who endured that time. Enjoy faerie, Druid stones, and the fantasy of them, then read on this is well written, and Ms. Nichols should keep writing!
