Overview

Jennifer Leigh O’Rourke, a gutsy, easily fired-up lass, moves from the harsh western Ireland coastline and is newly situated in the lavish valley of Killarney after suffering the loss of her parents and the execution of her husband for his part in the Revolution. Unforeseeable are the choices she must make through journeys of indecision, love, heartache, and mystical pathways to sculpt her future. Guiding her through her emotional quests is a wee wood sprite Goliath, whose insight convinces the lass she indeed has the gift of sight and treasures are not always found in a pot o’ gold.

Jonathan Edward Abbott, affluent English baron and favored agent of King George III, receives an unfavorable assignment. However, a positive future would be in doubt if he refuses the edict to travel to Ireland to deliver the king’s ultimatum. Becoming a social recluse after the scandalous death of his wife, he resents the royal interference in an orderly existence. Once he steps on the emerald isle’s rocky terrain, chaos reigns as cultures collide, tragedy revisits, and emotions’ ashes ignite anew.

Set in mystical Ireland on the heels of the 1798 Irish Revolution, Shadows o’er Killarney is an untimely love story of two people clutching opposite cultural beliefs and values during political turmoil, enhanced with mythical folklore.

Meet the Author

After retiring from education and wanting to stay busy, I dug out all the manuscripts written through the years and began a new career, that of author. Smashwords has been amazing in its assistance in preparing for final publications. I was born and raised in Texas. Although I have lived in other states, I always return home to my roots. My books are written from the heart with my readers always in mind. I hope you find much enjoyment in allowing your mind to wander to other times and places and will return to my site often to see the latest creation available.
