A deeply moving story of a courageous woman -- and a divided Ireland...Gracelin O'Malley Donnelly is no longer the innocent country girl she once was. Trapped in a loveless marriage to a cruel man, Grace faces harsh times with incredible courage. And as political unrest inflames her country, she reunites with her one true love -- and gives him the strength to go on...
"A novel of 1840's Ireland. There is unrest and slave-like conditions for working farm families even before the Great Potato Famine hit. This is the first of a trilogy about Grace and her family. Great reading!"
