Overview

The mystical beauty of the Irish coastline beckons. Return to 1884 and into the life of Kate O’Reilly for a journey marked by spiritual strength and courage.

Description

It is 1884. Kate O’Reilly stares resolutely into the wind on deck of the Golden Vanity, as the shoreline of her beloved Ireland disappears behind a veil of mist. Even now, she resists the possibility that happiness could be found in America. It is her father’s dream, not her own. The story of Kate’s personal journey begins amidst the mystical beauty of the Irish coastline. She learns early that love and laughter help to ease a soul’s burden in life. Kate O’Reilly, just 17, has the pedigree of an Irish peasant and the confidence of a Celtic Warrior Queen. Out of a sense of duty, Kate follows her parents to America and leaves behind a dream for her own future in Ireland, the country she loves. This story is much more than just an Irish emigrant’s tale, it’s a course set directly into the wind that is marked by spiritual strength and courage.
