Brigid the Girl from County Clare
Publication Date: First published November 25th, 2015)
Genre: Historical Fiction
Like making lace – she pieces together a
new life from a single thread of hope
Brigid is torn. If she stays in her beloved Ireland, she is another mouth to feed in a land plagued by starvation and poverty. If she leaves, she will never see her family again. But leave she must. There is not enough food.
Heartbroken, she boards the ship that will take her to a new life in Australia, comforted only by the knowledge that her cousin Jamie will make the journey with her. Her skill as a lacemaker soon draws attention, but life doesn’t always run smoothly in the harsh new landscape. Brigid must learn to conquer her fears and overcome the stigma of being a servant, a female and Irish if she is to fulfil her dream.
A new start in New Zealand offers hope – until the day she encounters the man who seeks her downfall.
From the award winning novelist whose writing has been compared with that of Catherine Cookson.
Winner of an IndieBRAG medallion and a Chill with a Book Readers’ Award.
