Overview

Terracotta Summer takes the O’Shea family from the security of family life in Manchester, England, and, like the seeds of a dandelion blowing in the wind, disperses them to Scotland, Northern Ireland and across the Atlantic Ocean. The title, Terracotta, symbolizes both the warm stability of clay pots, and the tenacious instincts of the vibrant Terracotta Rock Rose.

Feisty and beautiful young Ruth O’Shea, a strong-willed survivor, leaves Britain in the hope of turning her life around. The rest of the O’Sheas, including adult nephews, Ken and Patrick, have no idea as to Ruth’s whereabouts. They have troubles of their own. Patrick decides not to emigrate to Northern Ireland with his family and begins a downward path that takes him out of his depth. Meanwhile, up in Scotland, his brother Ken faces conflict and trials on a scale he’d never imagined.

    This Will Get And Keep Your Attention

    This story takes place in three very different locations, but connects itself with family ties and makes you feel a part of this extended family. I enjoyed the book's sudden turns of events and it's spontaneity--a little of everything from drug scandals to romance! I also learned a bit about the culture and landscapes of England, which was a real bonus in my view. I also enjoyed reading how the religious views of certain characters unfolded and shaped their behavior. This was a thoroughly enjoyable read, and I hope for a sequel!
