From the Author
How much trouble do you think a middle-aged Mormon genealogist can get into, while on a three-month tourist visa in Ireland? You'll be surprised - I was, and I'm the author! If you're in the mood for a good old-fashioned, will-they-won't they, Boomer-Lit last-chance-for-love story, packed with surprising situations and contemporary controversy, and told in Irish lyric-literary style, then Irish Firebrands is the romantic voyage you've been looking for!

This tale is almost 500 pages, and in some places slow. I was surprised by some of the erotic thoughts and scenes within this book, since it seems written for an LDS audience. These might offend some. The language is clean though. The characters are all flawed (and some of them majorly). It's a long road for them, and some parts make you cringe as a reader as you see them fall, and then fall again...but I loved seeing their redemption in the end, how they overcame their sins, weaknesses, mental illnesses, and judgment, and gained true happiness by living true to their values and covenants.
This book makes you want to weep for each of the characters at different points. It was unique in that the characters are in their 40's to 60's. Most novels have younger characters, so this was a fun take on an older stage of life, and the different things you bemoan, worry, and obsess over as you age. I'd rate it a 5 in research; 3 in pace of the story; 5 for characters; 3 for content, and 3 for length. Overall rating high 3 or 4. I liked the Irish setting and the character transformation and growth. I received a free copy of this story in exchange for my honest review. I wish this author success as she writes more.
