Susan Anne Mason’s ‘Irish Meadows’ Kindle Fire Giveaway and Author Chat

Susan Anne Mason has released her first historical fiction novel called Irish Meadows which is the first book in the Courage to Dream series.  This was a new author for me and this novel was a joy to read.  Make sure to take time and read about this fun new book below and enter the Kindle Fire giveaway!

 

 About the book:

Irish Meadows (Bethany House, July 2015)

Faced with an uncertain future, sometimes all you have left is the courage to dream.

Brianna and Colleen O'Leary know their Irish immigrant father expects them to marry well. Recently he's put even more pressure on them, insinuating that the very future of their Long Island horse farm, Irish Meadows, rests in their ability to land prosperous husbands. Both girls, however, have different visions for their futures.

Brianna, a quiet girl with a quick mind, dreams of attending college. Vivacious Colleen, meanwhile, is happy to marry---as long as her father's choice meets her exacting standards of the ideal groom. When former stable hand Gilbert Whelan returns from business school and distant relative Rylan Montgomery visits Long Island during his seminary training, the two men quickly complicate everyone's plans.

As the farm slips ever closer to ruin, James O'Leary grows more desperate. It will take every ounce of courage for both sisters to avoid being pawns in their father's machinations and instead follow their hearts. And even if they do, will they inevitably find their dreams too distant to reach?

My Review:

What a fun historical novel!!  It was such a pleasure to read and hard to put down!  Susan Anne Mason did a wonderful job with bringing her characters to life and creating an unforgettable story.  Brianna and Colleen each have their own struggles that they must overcome.  I enjoyed "watching" them grow in their character as the story progressed.  It's always fun to read about history in a novel.  That's why historical fiction is my favorite genre.  Of course, this novel appealed to me especially because of my Irish heritage.  As far as the religious aspect of this book, it is Catholic in nature mentioning priests, and nuns.  
This story was well written and I look forward to reading the next book in this series, A Worthy Heart.  Here is the description of the book from Susan Anne Mason's website:

Book 2 - A Worthy Heart will be available in 2016.  Adam O'Leary, newly released from prison, searches to make a new life for himself  in New York. The feisty Maggie Montgomery, visiting from Ireland, makes him wish he was a better man - worthy of her heart!
