Read several years ago but just getting it posted to Goodreads. Transferring all my book-related info from spiral notebooks to Goodreads.

Jeanette Baker has written some beautiful and captivating Irish-centered stories that I've enjoyed very much for years now. "The Delaney Woman" is among my favorites.

I think I feel like I don't have enough background on the Troubles to really appreciate this book.

This was an interesting story of Northern Ireland conflicts as well as a love story. I enjoyed the story, but I did not think that it was Jeanette Baker's best work, and I am a very strong fan of her books.

The problem for me with this book was that all of the characters were a little too flawed. All of the adults used very poor judgment at times, which made them hard to like most of the time. There were also too many occurrences that seemed implausible. Also the ending seemed very rushed, with i

If you are Irish or enjoy books about Ireland you will enjoy this book. Its a irish mystery with love, intrigue and suspense. Kellie Delaney goes looking for the person who is responsible for the death of her twin brother. Yet, the man she meets Tom Whelan is nothing like what she expects. I won't ruin it for you. It's a really good read.

I enjoy this author. This book was set in Ireland, and she gave alot of history into the conflicts, and rituals of Ireland: a pot of tea can solve anything :-)
The characters were well written, at times the plot was a little overdone. But a good story.

This was a good story about a young woman who loses her brother and nephew in the political/religious battles in Ireland. She goes on a search to find out how and why and finds love along the way. I enjoyed the story and learned some things too.
