Overview

…Like the Wild Geese of Old Ireland, five boys grew to manhood despite hunger, war, and the mean streets of New York…

She was everything he despised…but he didn’t know it…

Cathal Donnelly washes up on the shores of an Atlantic island one stormy night, with no memory of who he is or why he is there. But is his lovely rescuer his salvation…or his doom?

She dreamed of a very different life…

Laura Bainbridge has spent her entire life on tiny Turtle Island, but she dreams of a Season in London and a presentation to Queen Victoria. Can a handsome Irish stranger with a golden tongue and a disturbing past change her heart and convince her to stay?

As Cathal’s memory slowly returns, both he and Laura must come to grips with his painful past…and fight for a future free of hatred and loss.

About the Author

Cynthia believes she was destined to be interested in history. One of her distant ancestors, Thomas Aubert, reportedly sailed up the St. Lawrence River to discover Canada some 26 years before Jacques Cartier’s 1534 voyage. Another relative was a 17th Century “King’s Girl,” one of a group of young unmarried girls sent to New France as brides for the settlers there. Her passion for reading made her long to write books like the ones she enjoyed. A former journalist and lifelong Celtophile, she enjoyed a previous career as a reporter/editor for a small chain of community newspapers before returning to her first love, romantic fiction. Her stories usually include an Irish setting, hero or heroine, and sometimes all three. Her first novel, In Sunshine or in Shadow, released by Highland Press Publishing is set in post-Famine Ireland and is available from all online bookstores. It is available both in print and as an e-book. Its sequel, Coming Home, will be released by Highland Press soon.
