The Irish Girl 

Kitty, Bride and Jack are the best of friends, living on the west coast of Ireland.  Differences are that Kitty is privileged Anglo Irish, Bridie is Irish servant class and Jack is Irish and a bit of a rebel.  They love each other but their differences will create obstacles that will change their friendship. From the coast of Ireland to New York and back, I followed these characters.  Family relations, history, traditions and Irish lore are all part of this multi faceted story.  It is the first book in a trilogy and I am anxious to get on to book two.
