Description

"Deibel deftly weaves fascinating details about Irish history and culture into the plot of her latest sweetly romantic love story."--Booklist

"A classic boy-meets-girl story that packs a powerful punch."--Library Journal starred review

***

In 1920, Annabeth De Lacy's father is appointed landlord of Galway Parish in Ireland. Bored without all the trappings of the British Court, Annabeth convinces her father to arrange an apprenticeship for her with the Jennings family--descendants of the creator of the famed Claddagh Ring.

Stephen Jennings longs to do anything other than run his family's jewelry shop. Having had his heart broken, he no longer believes in love and is weary of peddling the "lies" the Claddagh Ring promises.

Meanwhile, as the war for Irish independence gains strength, many locals resent the De Lacys and decide to take things into their own hands to display their displeasure. As events take a dangerous turn for Annabeth and her family, she and Stephen begin to see that perhaps the "other side" isn't quite as barbaric and uncultured as they'd been led to believe--and that the bonds of friendship, love, and loyalty are only made stronger when put through the refiner's fire.

Travel to the Emerald Isle for another poignant and romantic story from the enchanted pen of Jennifer Deibel.

"A gem of a novel set in the Emerald Isle. Well done!"--Laura Frantz, Christy Award-winning author of A Heart Adrift


In 1920, Annabeth De Lacy's father is appointed landlord of Galway Parish in Ireland. Bored without the trappings and finery of the British Court, Annabeth convinces her father to arrange an apprenticeship for her with the Jennings family--descendants of the creator of the famed Claddagh ring.

Stephen Jennings longs to do anything other than make a career in his family's jewelry shop. The past has taught him to no longer believe in love and the "lies" the Claddagh ring supposedly promises. How can he peddle what he now finds offensive?

The war for Irish independence gains strength, and the De Lacy family is caught in the crossfire. As events take a life-threatening turn, Annabeth and Stephen will discover that the bonds of friendship, love, and loyalty can only be made stronger when put through the refiner's fire.


"An immersive read. Pick up this book and be transported to 1920s Ireland, where folklore abounds, conflict is brimming, and love is in the air."--Rachel Fordham, author of A Lady in Attendance

"What a superb visit to Ireland! Authentic, lively characters are spun to life in this tale based on the captivating legend of the Claddagh ring. I could almost taste the sea air, and I didn't want to leave!"--Joanna Davidson Politano, award-winning author of A Midnight Dance
