Many a Twist by Sheila Connolly
"I really enjoy the visits to Cork County and Sullivan's Pub! This is the Ireland that I want to visit someday. I really like the small town, everyone knows your name, feel to it.
It was very interesting how Maura's mother shows up after all these..." Read more of this review »

More of Sheila's books…
“Most people either love or hate old libraries. To some, a room like this--dim, high-ceilinged, dusty, smelling of old paper and crumbling leather--would be oppressive, a place to flee from in search of sun and air. To others, like me, it was a wonderful cave filled with unimaginable treasures and unexpected treats. I always found myself inhaling deeply when I entered the stacks, as if trying to absorb part of them into my bloodstream.”
Sheila Connolly, Fundraising the Dead

“That was the problem with having a real job: no time to do all the other interesting things in the world.”
Sheila Connolly, Relatively Dead

“Ar scáth a chéile a mhaireann na daoine. People live in one another’s shadows. —IRISH PROVERB”
Sheila Connolly, Buried in a Bog
