grandfather and great grandmother and surrogate father to her grandfather EoinThe story is told through Anne s POV and through Thomas s POV in his journal entries The history of the Irish Civil War is accounted extensively throughout Thomas s POV and oh how I found it hard to stay awake As the romance slowly starts to blossom between Thomas and Anne the history was still a huge focal point but theirove story was what grabbed a hold of my heart How would these two be able to Richard Nixon: The Life live theirives full of I Am Cow, Hear Me Moo! love and happy memories when they were from

stories and if we don t we ose them If the stories are gone then the people are gone too There are some paths that inevitably ead to heartache some acts that steal men s souls eaving them wandering forever after without them trying to find what they Why Diets Make Us Fat lost Soooooooo I m going to reread this book at aater d DNF 34%This is reading Dont Hex with Texas (Enchanted, Inc., like a history book A really boring history book But somehow the author also manages to make references to thingspeople during this time period as if the reader already knew all about it which I absolutely did not and thus had to Wikipedia things Then the parts that do not focus on the Irish War of Independence instead focused on exciting things such as going shopping for clothing and toiletries I just can t force myself to read this any So disappointing considering how much I really enjoyed From Sand and Ash and The Bird and the Sword Simply put MagnificentMy first Amy Harmon read and I absolutely get it now I absolutely get why this author s writings are so beloved She pens a gorgeous unforgettable romance If all menoved their wives the way I Spanish Dagger (China Bayles, love Anne we would all be a uselessot While I went into this blind and highly recommend you do as well I will tell you this is a historical romance and a time travel read The setting is Ireland beginning in the year 1916 I share this information because I stay away from the time travel genre BUT what an exception this was to my usual experience It was completely mesmerizingI also Everyday life in medieval times listened to this book It was the first time I heard a dual narration And WOW I didn t want it to endOn a personal note Iive in a town settled by many Irish immigrants and found it fascinating that it was was named after an area of Dublin mentioned numerous times this book Mount Joy I started this book with a ittle bit of trepidation Irish setting Irish Politics and History Irish characters Time travel although I did read Outlander and LOVED IT You know me by now if it is not done right I will get on my high Irish horse about it I didn t even have to put my foot in the stirrup or even take the horse from the stable I LOVED stirrup or even take the horse from the stable I LOVED Especially the history By the end of the story my heart was breaking and I was in tears not so much for the characters in the book for the real characters who did exist in the early 1900s and ived and died for Ireland The history after the 1916 Easter Rising is just a garbled mess of opinions and blame The book is heavily referenced with the poetry of William Butler Yeats a favourite poet of mine I of William Butler Yeats a favourite poet of mine I my childhood summers in Sligo which is the neighbouring county to Leitrim where this book is set Sligo is also where Yeats is buried We had books with his poetry in the house We often visited Lough Gill one year we even took a boat out onto the Lough what an adventure that was not a ifejacket in sight visited Lisadell House I wanted to be the Gazelle Sligo Town Lyons shop what a memory When my own children were born myself and himself brought them to Sligo too visited the grave of Yeats on many occasion I am sure they would kill me if they thought I was posting their picture here The book is set mostly in the 1920s where Anne has travelled back to Ireland To Dromahair the homeland of her ancestors Tragedy make for great stories We meet the eaders of the fight for freedom for Ireland Michael Collins in particular or Mick as he was called Michael Collins is either revered or reviled in Ireland Irish politics was complicated It still is I spent 3 days in Dublin Dead Giveaway last week where my son is studying for a Master s Degree in Irish History at Trinity College sorry I just have to name drop we visited Kilmainham Gaol Glasnevin Cemetary The Gresham Hotel all of these places are mentioned in the book He wants me to take the fall when it fails Didn t he just the bastardI wish they had taken the key and thrown it away when they put DeValera in his cell in Kilmainham Born in New York ye can have him He wasn t executed with the rest of the Easter Risingeaders Always a wily fucker he was I have come to terms with the fact that idealism often rewrites history to suit her narrative The truth is the English are not all tyrants and the Irish are not all saints Enough blood has been cast to condemn us all but Ireland deserves her independence So you are wondering if I did have any criticism of the book well maybe one or two but I could be completely wrong I didn t do the research I am not a historian I am Andrew Lost In the Kitchen leaving that to my son who is studying at Trinity College Dublin did I mention that already there is a reference to a Ferguson s Drugstore in Sligo I don t think pharmacies would have been referred to drugst. Dge of war is a dangerous place in which to awaken But there Anne finds herself hurt disoriented and under the care of Dr Thomas Smith guardian to a young boy who is oddly familiar Mistaken for the boy’song missing mother Anne adopts her identity convinced the woman’s disappearance is connected to her ownAs. .
