The Irish Milliner is a captivating story of Norah and her life as an Irish immigrant shortly before the Civil War. Norah's character is strong and courageous. She's an independent thinker ahead of her times. I love how she helps with the underground railroad by making hats for the women so that they blend in when traveling. Cynthia's books are well researched. It was so interesting learning more about the time period around the Civil War and continuing to follow Norah's journey.

The Irish Milliner has a different writing style than I am used to. It was hard to get into at first but I started enjoying it about third of the way through. I like to see how pre-Civil War Irish immigrants lived during that time. Then the Civil War begins and widowed Nora had to struggle to find a place for herself. I found it fun to see how she interacted with Abraham Lincoln and Elizabeth Jennings, which begins her courage to help with the Underground Railroad. She, also, finds herself in a struggle and dealing with those of her past and those of her present. The turmoil seems real and was I was interested in what would happen next.  I thought the story was pretty good after I got through the first third of the book. I would give it 3 1/2 stars. I received this book from the author, but was not required to write a review. This review is 100% my own honest opinion
