Editorial Reviews

From Kirkus Reviews

Kirkus Review Debut author Leslie's sweeping historical romance examines the increasingly complex role of women in marriage, politics and the workplace at the end of the 19th century. This well-developed novel uses historical details to create an educational and quite enjoyable read that raises complex themes. Readers can opt to be carried on waves of romance as Margaret copes with her unhappy marriage while longing for a dashing escape, or they can elect to dive into an examination of her precarious position as a determined woman in a male-centric world. An appealing examination of a turn-of-the-century woman who valiantly strives for personal and political change. - Kirkus Media LLC

About the Author

Judy Leslie has studied both literary and popular fiction at the University of Washington. For The Love of Ireland is her debut novel. Inspired by her days as owner of an antique shop in the historical town of Bellingham, Washington, she decided to focus her writing on historical fiction.

She discovered that throughout history people held onto a variety items just for sentimental reasons: a lock of hair or a ribbon from a loved one, even old lace and hat pins. That's how she came up with the idea of having Margaret collect buttons in her novel For the Love of Ireland.

Surrounding herself with antiques also moved her to think about women and how far they had come, as well as all the unsung female heroes who had risked their lives, so she could enjoy the freedoms that she does now. She wrote For the Love of Ireland about the life of one these women, Margaret Sullivan the unknown woman journalist behind many popular articles in the New York Times and Chicago Tribune during the 1880s.

Judy believes that today women are still wrestling with the same issues of finding love, happiness and meaning in the world, just as their great-grandmothers did over a hundred years ago.
