More About This Book

Overview

Chicago, 1887: Sixteen-year-old Julia Hanlon sees plenty of opportunity in the land of her birth, an exile returning with no idea why her mother abandoned her as a child of three. Grabbing that opportunity comes with risks to a girl who fears deportation.

She knows what the future holds for her siblings if they don't assimilate, but disobeying their father could see Julia back in Ireland, alone. Her oldest brother must become her ally in a quest to leave the dust of Ireland behind, but Daniel betrayed her once before and his guilt is driving a wedge between them. Until he can find the words of a confession to atone for what he perceives as sins, Julia will find that her carefully considered plans for everyone's future are not under her complete control. Until he can confront their mother, there can be no peace in the Hanlon family.

A sweeping family saga, LACE CURTAIN IRISH follows the path of the first generation of native born children of immigrants who navigate between the Old World and the New. From the sparkling make-believe of the World's Columbian Exposition to the reality of the stinking Union Stockyards, the novel reveals Julia's sacrifices for the sake of her family, and her resilience in the face of declining personal fortune.

    This is Poseidon's cabin. It's low, like a bunker, and it always smells like the sea. It faces the lake where the canoeing races are held and also has bunk beds. There is a three-tiered fountain in the corner with drachmas and there are metal hippocampi hanging from the ceiling.

    A Novel That Captures The Family Dynamic

    Once you start this book, you won't be able to put it down.

    The story follows the lives of Julia and Daniel Hanlon, brother and sister, first generation Americans. Set in Chicago at the end of the Nineteenth Century, the novel really shows how difficult it was for immigrants to assimilate into American culture, with the same stress that we see today.

    If you have a drop of Irish blood in your veins, you have to read this novel. There are scenes that will make you laugh and make you cry, but as Julia finds happiness by seeing her dreams realized, you will understand what sacrifices our ancestors had to make to get us where we are today.
