Irish Meadows is Susan Anne Mason's new novel from Bethany House Publishers. Filled with angst, thwarted love, marriages designed to save her father's farm and the awful reality of falling in love with a priest devoted to his church.
I loved the sisters in this book. They were both so different and yet embodied the Irish culture, faith, and spirit. It was also a pleasant read. Not bogged down by lots of Irish/American history and yet it was peppered throughout the well-moving story. It captured my attention and I was more than pleased at the end of the book.
Susan Anne Mason has a new follower/reader in me! I'm looking forward to her next release! :)
1911, Long Island, New York
Faced With an Uncertain Future, Sometimes All You Have Left Is the Courage to Dream
Brianna and Colleen O'Leary know their Irish immigrant father expects them to marry well. Recently he's put even more pressure on them, insinuating that the very future of their Long Island horse farm, Irish Meadows, rests in their ability to land prosperous husbands. Both girls, however, have different visions for their futures.
Brianna, a quiet girl with a quick mind, dreams of attending college. Vivacious Colleen, meanwhile, is happy to marry--as long as her father's choice meets her exacting standards of the ideal groom. When former stable hand Gilbert Whelan returns from business school and distant relative Rylan Montgomery visits Long Island during his seminary training, the two men quickly complicate everyone's plans.
