The Yellow House by Patricia Falvey

Jan 26, 2011

Set in Ulster in the early 20th Century, this is the tale of the “Irish issue” from the perspective of the O’Neill family – Eileen in particular. Her father raised her to be a warrior, and she had to fight for her family, her homeland, her job and her love. During the many dark days she held onto her dream of reuniting her family in The Yellow House, her childhood home painted bright yellow by her father. Eileen and her family suffer multiple tragedies, but as a warrior she perseveres. This book should appeal to readers who enjoy Irish history, family dynamics and a little romance.
