Overview

She crossed an ocean to escape the suffering of famine-torn Ireland. Haunted by loss, but determined to build a life in the New World, Gracelin O'Malley then crosses the country with her young children to accept a San Francisco sea captain's practical proposal of marriage. But when she arrives, he is not there, and the City of Gold is no place for widows and children.

When a prominent doctor offers her work in his household, Grace accepts, only to become embroiled in blackmail and betrayal at the hands of his troubled sister. As past catches up to present, Grace discovers that the city harbors one man she'd thought lost to her, and their reunion sets in motion a series of events that affects the future of everyone around them. But as Grace prepares to wed, there is one last ghost to face.

Editorial Reviews

KLIATT
This historical novel completes the trilogy about a feisty and beautiful Irish immigrant, and readers of the first two books will certainly want to read this to find out how Gracelin's story is resolved. It begins in San Francisco, as Gracelin's journey with her two young children across the continent ends. It's just after the Gold Rush madness is over, and San Francisco is populated by people from all over the world. Gracelin is now about 25 years old, and she has tried to accept the death of her true love, Morgan, the father of her four-year-old son Jack; so she is seeking out Capt. Reinders, hoping that he will be willing to marry her to provide security for her children. She doesn't know that Morgan is still alive and searching for her—a parallel story as Morgan, with the help of Native Americans, makes his way from the wilderness of Canada to San Francisco. Moore adds a large subplot in this novel about a family from the slave-holding South. Gracelin works as a housekeeper for a doctor, whose sister suffers from mental illness. The uncovering of family secrets eventually heals that situation. Gracelin's brother Sean, who came with her to America and had left her to cross the continent with the Mormons, eventually finds his way to San Francisco and takes refuge among the Chinese, unfortunately gambling and smoking opium. Never mind, all is resolved wonderfully in the final chapters. Brother and sister find one another; Gracelin and Morgan are reunited. No one would be satisfied with this final book in the trilogy without reading the previous ones. Together, using one family primarily, the three books provide a panorama of the Irish immigrant experience in the mid-19th century.(The Gracelin O'Malley Trilogy, Book 3). KLIATT Codes: SA—Recommended for senior high school students, advanced students, and adults. 2005, Penguin, New American Library, 394p., Ages 15 to adult.

    Excellent!

    This was the perfect conclusion to this series of books. I couldn't put this book down. I was sad to finish it because I knew this was the last book and I just didn't want it to be over. Gracelin's story is heartwarming, touching, and inspriing. She is an amazing character whose journey I enjoyed following. Highly recommended!!!

    AMAZING TRIOLGY!!!

    All three of the books in this series (Gracelin O'Malley, Leaving Ireland, and Till Morning Light) were amazing. I am an avid reader and love books, however, I have never been this wrap up in a series or a character before. I fell instantly in love with Gracelin and Morgan. Ann Moore is an amazing writer. Being of Irish decent I grew up listening to my grandmother tell stories of her family and their struggles in Ireland and coming to America; and so this book also brought back the memories of my grandmother. These books and their characters grab at my heart. I have to agree with others when by saying I laughed, cried and cheered.

    Beautiful End to a Magnificent trilogy!

    Can Anne Moore write or what?!!This is one of the most moving, sensational series of books i have read in a long time. It made me laugh, cry, and cheer all at once. I would reccommend this book and the two others in the series to nayone who likes historical romances. And ones that are tastefully done without graphic sex scenes. I love Grace, Morgan, and all the characters in the books, they are human belivable and you feel like you've known them forever. I can't wait for her next book!

    A fine Americana tale

    In 1852, Irish widow Gracelin O¿Malley accompanied by her daughter Mary Kate and adopted son Jack travels to San Francisco where she will wed Captain Reinders in a marriage of convenience. However, Reinders is at sea somewhere near Panama City, a place Gracelin never heard of. Reinders¿ partner Lars Darmstadt and his spouse Detra are also away.......................... Needing income, Gracelin obtains work as a housekeeper for Dr. Wakefield and his family. The job would be fine except for the machinations of her employer¿s sister Abigail, who tries to blackmail her to achieve her goals. When Reinders arrives in town, Gracelin prepares for her wedding, but a ghost arises from the dead that may put a halt to the nuptials.................... Ann Moore continues the exciting adventures of Gracelin O¿Malley who has long since left Ireland and has now journeyed across the New World continent with this story having her already arrived in San Francisco. The story line is filled with historical tidbits that enable the audience to believe they are in the middle of the nineteenth century. However, it is the deep cast that makes this a solid historical tale as the audience can taste the psychological prisons that each person uses to lock themselves up from fully enjoying life. `TIL MORNING LIGHT is a fine Americana tale....................

    recommended for romance lovers interested in the Irish immigration

    It is best read not as a stand alone, but as a part of a whole with the trilogy. It brings together all of the story lines as expected. All three books could have been one large book more effectively.

    Ann Moore is a fantastic writer in her obvious historical research that resulted in this trilogy. It was my hope that by the time I had finished this third novel, she would have brought Gracelin and Morgan on to another adventure. I hope that she continues to bring her beautiful talents to share with us. I recommend this trilogy highly!
