An evocative, heartfelt story of how the bond of female friendship can survive and thrive through adversity. -- KATE KERRIGAN, New York Times bestselling author Richin authentic historical and Irish detail, The Girls of Ennismore is a compelling story of love, duty, and reinvention, highlighting the vast rewards - or grave consequences - of following one's heart. Fans of Downton Abbey will devour this sweeping tale. -- Kristina McMorris, New York Times bestselling author of The Edge of Lost An engaging narrative of class differences, sibling entanglements... finding home, finding love, all set against the turbulent 1916 Easter Uprising in Ireland... A complex and enjoyable read. -- Susan Vreeland A captivating portrayal of life in Ireland - above and below stairs - during the years leading up to the Great War and the Irish rebellion. Engaging, atmospheric and packed with rich historical detail, I thoroughly enjoyed The Girls of Ennismore. -- Hazel Gaynor Patricia Falvey tells the story of some of Ireland's most turbulent year through the lives of two very different women, who are intimately connected. Exciting and moving. -- Mary Pat Kelly Patricia Falvey's lovely and deeply romantic novel is more than a finely detailed and well researched chronicle of the tumultuous and sweeping social changes in Ireland at the turn of the last century. It is a richly imagined story of two friends - one woman born to wealth and privilege, the other born in poverty and facing a life of servitude - whose abiding friendship proves stronger than blood ties, an unforgiving class system, and even the ravages of war. -- Kathleen Kent, author of The Heretic's Daughter
