This is why I love historical fiction, two stories bleeding together to make a real conection to the characters, place and during a tragic true time. This is a family torn by WWI and religous discrimination in Ireland and their story that felt sharp and went straight to my heart. I love strong characters that emerge with a chip on their shoulder like I found Eileen to be, a passionate, sharp tounged, born and breed Irish Catholic in a setting of uprising. She has lost everything she holds dearest to her and is in a battle of her life to put all the pieces back together again. Her dream to put her family back together in the yellow house seems to be illusive and impossible but she is an O'Neill warrior in a fight for her freedom.
Great read, I could not put down! I will be reading more form this author!
