About the book:
Faced with an uncertain future, sometimes all you have left is the courage to dream.
Brianna and Colleen O'Leary know their Irish immigrant father expects them to marry well. Recently he's put even more pressure on them, insinuating that the very future of their Long Island horse farm, Irish Meadows, rests in their ability to land prosperous husbands. Both girls, however, have different visions for their futures.
Brianna, a quiet girl with a quick mind, dreams of attending college. Vivacious Colleen, meanwhile, is happy to marry---as long as her father's choice meets her exacting standards of the ideal groom. When former stable hand Gilbert Whelan returns from business school and distant relative Rylan Montgomery visits Long Island during his seminary training, the two men
quickly complicate everyone's plans.
As the farm slips ever closer to ruin, James O'Leary grows more desperate. It will take every ounce of courage for both sisters to avoid being pawns in their father's machinations and instead follow their hearts. And even if they do, will they inevitably find their dreams too distant to reach?
About the author:
Susan Anne Mason's debut historical novel, Irish Meadows, won the Fiction from the Heartland contest from the Mid-American Romance Authors Chapter of RWA. A member of ACFW, as well, she lives outside of Toronto, Ontario, with her husband and two children.
I am always a little nervous to read an author's debut book, but I think I will be less skeptical in the future because this Susan Anne Mason book was phenomenal and if I didn't know it was her first book, I would have NEVER known from reading it!
Mason writes with the finesse and skill of a very published author and I was instantly drawn into the two sister's characters and the story line! I loved watching Brianna and Colleen grow as women and learn to stand up for themselves! I was cheering for them to find love and loving when they did!
This book was one of my favorite books of the Summer!
You can purchase Irish Meadows for $10.14 from Amazon.com
