The book club met on Wednesday May 5, with author Patricia Falvey doing a review of her two books, The Yellow House and The Linen Queen. Both books feature intriguing female characters and take place in Northern Ireland during a trying time in Irish history. The Yellow House is in the time period when the Irish uprising is coming into steam, with events leading to partitioning. The Linen Queen is set during World War II.
Ms. Favley has stimulated our interest in revealing a new book in the works, The Girls of Inismore, set on the west coast of Ireland during the early 1900s, and reviews as an Irish Downton Abbey.
