A tale of forbidden passions - To Know the Road

Annie Coyle Martin's story of forbidden passions set in the war years and played against a background of sectarianism and religious conservatism in Ireland.

An inspiring tale of love, hate and the indomitable human spirit.

It is 1937, Victoria is the youngest daughter of well to do Irish Protestant parents. A chance meeting with a handsome stranger sets Victoria on a heartbreaking path of conflict involving family, tradition and religion. Caught between the Catholic and Protestant hostilities in Ireland, will Victoria and Donny ever find happiness?

This is a story of forbidden passions set primarily in the Thirties and the war years, and plays against a background of sectarianism and extreme social and religious conservatism in an Ireland neutral in the war, isolated at the edge of Europe and yet impacted in every filament of daily life by the conflict.

    Elizabeth, Good things come to those who wait, but I see Barnes and Noble and likely Amazon will take orders now. Enjoy. Annie

  3. I read " The Music of What Happens" and enjoyed it. This looks like the sequel so great.

    I enjoyed this book. Victoria 's night of passion with Donny changes her life forever. Her journey from somewhat spoilt middle class girl to wife and mother is full of twists and turns. The characters were well rounded and I enjoyed learning a bit about the history of Ireland as well. The side story of Saucebottle was compelling.
