I am so very excited to be sharing this post with you today! I’ve been keeping almost everything about this story under wraps, and I’m about to burst!
So, I’m so glad to be able to reveal to you the title and cover for this book, which releases February, 1, 2022!
This story includes so many of my favorite facets of Ireland: the legend of the Claddagh Ring, Galway city and county, the Irish people, their War for Independence, and the underlying tension between the Irish and British. Of course, there is plenty of the Irish culture and charm woven into this story, and I hope you love it as much as I do!
Without further ado, I am pleased to introduce you to The Lady of Galway Manor.
About the story:
In 1920, Annabeth De Lacy’s father is appointed landlord of Galway Parish in Ireland. Bored without all the trappings of the British Court, Annabeth convinces her father to arrange an apprenticeship for her with the Jennings family–descendants of the creator of the famed Claddagh Ring.
Stephen Jennings longs to do anything other than run his family’s jewelry shop. Having had his heart broken, he no longer believes in love and is weary of peddling the lies the Claddagh Ring promises.
Meanwhile, as the war for Irish independence gains strength, many locals resent the De Lacys and decide to take things into their own hands to display their displeasure. As events take a dangerous turn for Annabeth and her family, she and Stephen begin to see that perhaps the “other side” isn’t quite as barbaric and uncultured as they’d been led to believe–and that the bonds of friendship, love, and loyalty are only made stronger when put through the refiner’s fire.
