Review: Gracelin O'Malley

Gracelin O'Malley Gracelin O'Malley by Ann Moore
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Wonderfully written historical fiction. Ireland during the 1840's potato famine and uprising.

Gracelin O'Malley is a young girl who has lost her mother but has two brothers, her father and her grandmother. Her father strikes up a marriage bargain for her with a rich English landowner. All is ok for awhile but soon Grace learns that she is only there to supply a male heir and when that falls flat, her husband, Bram becomes violent.

Life is a tremendous struggle for the Irish people during these times. You become very attached to all the characters in the book and look forward to the continuation of the story.

A thoroughly enjoyable and educational read.
