Susie Murphy is an Irish historical fiction author. She loves historical fiction so much that she often wishes she had been born two hundred years ago. Still, she remains grateful for many aspects of the modern age, including women’s suffrage, electric showers and pizza. Susie’s novels, A Class Apart and A Class Entwined, are the first two instalments in her six-part series A Matter of Class, which begins in Ireland in 1828.

As well as spreading the word online about my new novel A Class Entwined, I was also very lucky to get some local media coverage in my home county of Tipperary!

What a lovely book showcasing strong, courageous female characters. The lighthouse itself felt like a separate character and a sense of place was firmly established in both timelines. It had such a moving ending, all the more affecting because the bo ...more
