Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Charles and Karen divorce for no good reason since both still love each other. He returns to a small village on the West Coast of Ireland to relive the happy time and visit the places they enjoyed together when they first married.

He resided at the same B&B where they lived. He made friends with the locals at the village pub and went fishing in a curragh with a friend from the pub. While fishing they are caught in a sudden storm and their curragh is crushed. They are reported lost at sea.

While having coffee with a friend in the newspaper office where she is employed, Karen learns Charles is missing at sea and blames herself and the divorce for his loss.

She goes to Ireland to visit the site of his disappearance. Depressed, she plans suicide, but an enchantment saved her life.

Charles came awake on a strand where Gealic speaking women found him and nursed him back to health. He learns from the village priest that he has gone back in time to the 1850s,where he experiences the horror of the Great Famine where a million people died of starvation while food was shipped to England.

Unable to witness more death and starvation he goes to Dublin. When he steps off the railroad car he finds himself now in 1916 just before the failed Easter Monday Rising.

You will meet the leaders of the Rising and he is captured by the Brits and imprisoned in the infamous Kilmaingham Gaol. He faced a firing squad.

There are enchanted moments when you will meet ghosts and banshees, and plain country folk with strange customs.
