Jean Grainger lives in Cork, Ireland with her family. She is a teacher, a lecturer, a playwrite and a director of plays for young people. She is fascinated by the history of her country and writes inspired by its turbulent past. Her first novel, the Tour, is a story about a group of American visitors on a tour of Ireland and is based on her experiences as an Irish tour guide. Her second novel, So Much Owed revolves around the story of the Buckley family and is a saga spanning both world wars. The historical research was based on the research she did for a PhD on the Role of Women in the Second World War. Her third book, Shadow of a Century, is set during the Easter Rising of 1916 in Dublin, which was the opening act of the drama that became the evolution of the Irish Republic.
She has four children and works full-time in education.

Was so impressed with this book. I did not know about any of the Irish history. Very well presented in this book.

Absolutely wonderful! Exciting! Heart-warming! (This is not a bodice-ripper, by any means - - & this is a good thing, imho.) (Um, are you Maeve Binchey's long-lost cousin, by chance? ;);) I'm off to buy the rest of your books. Thank you - - and three cheers (also 5+ stars), Lucky
