Living a dog's life...now and then

Anna O'Shea has failed at marriage, shed her job at a law firm, and she's trying to re-create herself when she and her recalcitrant nephew are summoned to the past in a manner that nearly destroys them. Her twenty-first-century skills pale as she struggles to find her nephew in nineteenth-century Ireland. For one of them, the past is brutally difficult, filled with hunger and struggle. For the other, the past is filled with privilege, status, and a reprieve from the crushing pain of present-day life. For both Anna and her nephew, the past offers them a chance at love.

Will every choice they make reverberate down through time? And do Irish Wolfhounds carry the soul of the ancient celts?

The past and present wrap around finely wrought characters who reveal the road home. Mystical, charm en la vida real. Sus obras escritas han sido publicadas en varios diarios y revistas. Vive en Pensilvania con su esposo y sus hijos.

El trabajo premiado de la autora e ilustradora Victoria Kann ha adornado las portadas y pÁginas de varias revistas, diarios y libros. Cuando no estÁ ilustrando, puedes encontrarla probando deliciosos pastelitos en las confiterÍas de Nueva York junto a su esposo y sus dos pequeÑas Rosalinas.

Review:

"In Sheehan's spellbinding latest (after Lost & Found), former lawyer Anna O'Shea becomes a time-traveling ex-wife when she returns from a vacation in Ireland and is enlisted to pick up her brother Patrick's son from jail in Newark after Patrick is severely injured in a car accident. Anna retrieves troublesome 16-year-old Joe and sets him up at her home, then wakes in the middle of the night to find him rummaging through her luggage. Joe's intrigued by a mysterious swath of cloth Anna picked up at a tourist trap, and when she tries to take it from him, the two are zapped back 164 years to pre — potato famine Ireland. Sheehan vividly depicts Irish-British conflicts as Anna becomes involved with an Irish smuggler's group and falls for a rebel cartographer. Equally compelling is Joe's experience as a wrestling champ and his romance with sparky lass Taleen. Throw in loyal Irish wolfhound Madigan, and you've got an altogether enjoyable romantic adventure yarn with a heavy helping of magic. (July)" Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)

Synopsis:

I didn't know what to expect from this author, so I took a chance upon finding it in clearance. I found it to be well-written & a very enjoyable "summer escape" read. If you would enjoy reading a magical-type of story that aptly describes life in early Ireland, while still providing believable characters, then this is one you shouldn't miss!
