Product Description

Review

This is a compelling, fast-paced read with a plot that builds inexorably. The characters are finely drawn and the writers, despite the fact that neither are Irish, manage to weave Irish Traveller culture throughout the fabric of the book.

They manage to authentically capture an atmosphere of suspicion between the Traveller community and the rest of society. They also beautifully convey the emotional stiflement among characters haunted by the spell of the past.

--Irish Independent Newspaper, August 2013<br ><br >This is Isabella Connor's first book and I hope it won t be the last because I eagerly await the next story.

If you're looking for a great book to finish out your summer reading, I recommend this one to you!

--Long & Short Reviews, September 2013<br ><br >This really is an excellent story. Combining the world and tradition of the Travelling people with the upper-class snobbery of the English Stewart family and adding in a mix of supporting characters. The plot gathers pace, starting slowly, introducing the characters and building to an ending that I really didn't predict. 5 stars! --New Books Magazine, August 2013

I liked that there were the two male leads, I really loved this aspect and I enjoyed getting to know both of them individually. I found both Jack and Luke to be fascinating characters, each with their own traits and personalities. They were both very believable and realistic, I found myself forming a connection with them and I wanted to read on to see where their journey would take them.

One of my favourite aspects of this book was that it included an Irish Traveller as a main characters and really explored the traveller community. I don't think the traveller community is written about enough, I felt that I learnt a lot from this and I thoroughly enjoyed this part of the novel.

This story was exciting and emotional at the same time. I was gripped by the story and intrigued about what was going to happen, it was a novel where once I'd picked it up, it was very hard to put down. I was always keen to read on and excited about what I might unravel or discover next. However, it was also very emotional - as I read I went through a wide range of feelings as the novel explored topics such as family, friendship, secrets and betrayal. There were also a few dramatic moments that had me gasping out loud.

I really don't want to spoil anything for all of you, but I was really surprised by this story in the best way possible, I thought it was going to be good but I was actually very impressed - I think the male characters are perfectly written and there is a great plot line for readers to become absorbed in. Beneath An Irish Sky is a compelling tale of family, secrets, love, betrayal, friendship and a whole lot more waiting to be uncovered!

Jack is in Dublin having a task to undertake as a direct result from the aftermath of the traffic accident in the blurb. He finds out something life-changing about a person's existence that he never knew. He needs to get back to his business but his task doesn't end in Dublin.

From the first page I had lots of questions ... What had Annie done to be the cause of so much emotion? Why didn't Jack know where it had gone wrong? I was compelled to read on to find out about Jack's life and why he was so beaten down.

I wish we could have met Annie. Having provoked such strong emotions in our characters and the descriptions of her make me think I would have liked her ... a lot!

Luke travels back to Manchester with Jack and their story unfolds amidst a community that hides secrets and jealousy - a community that is led in the majority by the head and not the heart. Business and appearances takes precedence over the personal, no matter the cost.

We learn about the influence Jack's parents still have on his life and the harshness of Luke's life with Annie and her brothers. Every time they take a step towards each other, something else happens or comes to light that affects their relationship. There is plenty of tenseness and anxiety between these two. Traveller customs have a large part to play and it was interesting to find out more about these.

Alongside their fragile relationship is the new women in their lives. Kate is drawn to Luke and fights his corner while Emer is very balanced and her skills are effective in getting Jack to look deeper into himself.

Jack Stewart's life is about to get turned upside down following a phone call from Dublin telling him that someone he once loved has been killed in a road accident. But what he thought would be a quick trip to Dublin turns out to be a little more complicated than that as he discovers that she had kept a secret from him.

Luke wakes up in hospital alone to the discovery that his mother has died but it's clear that there's more troubling him than just his injuries from the crash. What is his story and what is his connection to Jack?

I really liked the fact that there were two lead characters that were both male coming from different backgrounds which made for fascinating back stories. And even though we never get to meet Annie in person, she's very much an integral part of this story linking both Jack, Luke and their families.

From the very first chapter after Jack receives the phone call I was immediately hooked and a lot of questions were buzzing round my head wondering why Annie had left Jack in the first place, where has she been all these years, and why had she kept such an important secret from him? All the answers and some even more shocking secrets were uncovered over the 8 hour period I spent today reading this book, I just couldn't put it down!

This is one of them stories where I'm going to let the synopsis tell you what the story is about because it is so intricately told, I'm scared of spoiling it!

What I will say is that in the 12 hours it took me to read this I was gripped, I couldn't put this book down, I found myself walking around the house with my head permanently in the story, I didn't want to leave the characters until the book ended and even then I wasn't ready to let them go.

The story itself plays host to so many wonderful characters and I found myself on a roller-coaster of emotions throughout culminating in a truly spectacular ending.

For me one of the unsung heroes of the book was Matt, he was none judgemental and just a genuinely lovely character to read about, he was always willing to listen to people.

'Beneath an Irish Sky' is a beautifully captivating debut, that will have your mind travelling along with the Irish traveller!
