An Irishwoman's Tale

What can you expect to find in An Irishwoman's Tale , a work of contemporary Christian fiction? I did my best to capture on paper an incredible story told to me on the front porch of my home in Terre Haute, Indiana...

Mary, a red-haired wife, caretaker, and mother, is desperately trying to shove her first memories of County Clare, Ireland, into the lockbox of her mind. When her daughter dabbles with substance abuse, the dam of secrets breaks. Mary and her new friend Sally Stevens, a chatty Southerner, head back to the mystical cliffs of Ireland, where God shows Mary how to deal with her present, past, and future.

A tip of the woolen cap to the Kregel design department for the beautiful cover of my debut novel. Just wait until you see the interior layout of the book! Celtic crosses, Irish harps, snippets from folk songs and's a beautiful book, so pack your bags and travel, first through this website, next to Ireland...then wherever our imaginations, and God, will allow us to go! I so appreciate the outflow of support for my debut novel. Please forward this link to your friends who love books!
