Description

In the late nineteenth century, after disease and circumstance have left her alone in the world, Mary Rourke believes she is predestined to spinsterhood in her small community in Newfoundland. When a series of dramatic events brings a strange man to her door, Mary emerges from the comfortable isolation that she knows to follow her dreams in Boston. Those desires do not come without sacrifice and hard choices. When her past comes back to haunt her, Mary must decide whether there is room for both her aspirations and her heart—or if she must surrender one to have the other.

About the Authors

Ida Linehan Young

First and foremost, Ida Linehan Young is a mother to three adult children, Sharon, Stacey and Shawna, and a grandmother to the most extraordinary little boy, Parker. By day she works in the information technology sector in the federal government and has recently forayed into learning the French language in the hopes of becoming bilingual. She started writing several years ago and published her memoir, No Turning Back: Surviving the Linehan Family Tragedy, in 2014. Influenced by her love of local history and the familial art of storytelling passed down by her father and her maternal grandfather, she escapes to writing any chance she can get. She enjoys writing historical fiction to keep the past alive for generations to come.
