Erin’s Child

By Sheelagh Kelly

The third novel in Sheelagh Kelly’s bestselling ‘Feeney’ saga is now reissued as a HarperCollins Paperback.

By the year 1875, the Feeneys have left the squalor of the slums far behind them, yet the spectre of tragedy still stalks their path. Patrick remains the simple man of simple tastes, out of sympathy with Thomasin’s ambition to expand her business empire still further across Yorkshire’s broad acres. They have already lost a son to a fiery death, when their granddaughter Rosanne follows a rebel lover down a star-crossed road. Now they must look to their other grandchildren – Nick, a cool young man who’s privy to everone’s secrets, and Erin’s daughter Belle, who has problems of her own – to fill the wide chasm of sadness… When the clouds crack open with a shaft of sunlit hope, Patrick Feeney has come full circle, home to the hills of Ireland half a century on.
