I read this book in about 2 days. I’m a fan of historical fiction, so couple that with a little romance, and I’m in! There were quite a few scenes that happened on a boat, taking Margaret back and forth form the States to Ireland, which was a bit reminiscent of the Titanic. While Margaret is no Rose and Michael is not Jack, I found them to be endearing together. The one HUGE issues was that Margaret was married and it truthfully bothered me that she wasn’t focusing on her marriage or ending it. I really have strong opinions about affairs, but Judy Leslie balances this with some grace and shows the darker side to Margaret’s husband…which we need to be a little okay with an emotional affair, right?!? Margaret and Michael don’t have any sexual contact, but the author is able to show how much their hearts ached for each other and how they both showed their love for one another through their mutual support of liberating Ireland from England.

I was absolutely intrigued with Margaret and her reporting style. I can’t imagine the secrecy and great effort it took for her to investigate the happenings in Ireland and its people, as well as writing about it under a pseudonym. Working as a reporter for the newspaper, she traveled extensively and met many people who were in support of freeing Ireland. She also had to balance that with her role as a wife and supporter of her husband, who was a public figure and also head of a liberation party in the United States.

There is so much contained in this book with lots of characters, storylines, and some twists and turns. I loved the style of writing, the way everyone in someway was connected to one another, and the history of what Ireland’s people endured during a difficult and tumultuous period. I was even more amazed to learn that this story was loosely based on real people and their work. I highly suggest this book to anyone that loves a great historical fiction book! This book has all the ingredients for a great story: a little romance, some mystery, and some real life characters!!
