Ireland, 1911: After seven centuries of unyielding oppression, there is a tempest rising, a national yearning for Irish Independence. It threatens to sweep away all that is precious for the very privileged O’Rourke and de la Roche families. Seismic changes are but a whisper away. What will this mean for the wastrel Courtland O’Rourke and the defiant, mischief-making Lacey de la Roche, as their squabbling relationship matures into a love fraught with sins of omission and secrets of lethal consequences?
In this debut historical novel, The Irish Tempest thrusts the reader into the anguish of the 1916 Easter Rising and beyond, as Ireland chafes under the choke-hold of British domination. Deftly paced with vividly drawn characters, The Irish Tempest embraces historical elements while preserving the essence of evocative storytelling.
