Hi Betsy.

The order of publication will differ slightly on either side of the Atlantic, so I've a feeling I'm going to be answering this question quite a lot! I'm glad you'd like to know, though. :)

Here in Europe, Finfarran #4 is The Month of Borrowed Dreams, and it came out this summer. Book #5 in the series, The Transatlantic Book Club will come out next year.

In the US, the order is
#1 The Library at the Edge of The World
#2 Summer at the Garden Café (just published)
#3 The Mistletoe Matchmaker (2019)
#4 The Transatlantic Book Club (2020)
and then The Month of Borrowed Dreams (2021), which will make it book #5 over there.

The order of publication is decided by my publishers on either side of the Atlantic. They series is written so that the order in which the books are read isn't vital, as each works as a stand-alone and different books take different characters' stories forward. I'm greatly enjoying this because it allows me to step sideways and explore different themes and different aspects of Finfarran life, as well as its history, and feedback on my Facebook Author page is letting me know what people like.

Do come over and join the conversations there, if you haven't already done so. You'll be very welcome! All the best, Felicity.

The Rythms of Life in Lockdown London




Last September our TV signal went down. We’d just travelled from Ireland to London, where settling into our two room flat normally takes five minutes. Boiler on, yep we’ve got hot water. Fingers crossed, deep breath, phew, the broadband’s still working. Stick a pizza in the oven and watch an episode of Taskmaster. Totally normal. But that night, we had a crisis.

“Everything in life has its own time to happen. A time to plant, a time to grow, and a time to harvest. And if you take things steady you’ll bring your harvest home.”
Felicity Hayes-McCoy, The Library at the Edge of the World

“This book tells my story. I’m writing it in Ireland, in a house on a hillside. The house sits low in the landscape between a holy well and the site of an Iron Age dwelling. It was built of stones ploughed out of the fields by men who knew how to raise them with their hands and to lock one stone to the next so each was firm. It’s a lone house on the foothills of the last mountain on the Dingle peninsula, the westernmost point in mainland Europe. At night the sky curves above it like a dark bowl, studded with stars.

From the moment I crossed the mountain, I fell in love with the place, which was more beautiful than any I’d ever seen. And with a way of looking at life that was deeper, richer, and wiser than any I’d known before.”
Felicity Hayes-McCoy, The House on an Irish Hillside
