The Girl from County Clare by Vicky Adin

The Girl from County Clare

has been AWARDED


Chill with a Book READERS’ Award

Like making lace – she pieced together a new life from a single thread of hope

Brigid loves her home and family, but she is torn. If she stays, she is another mouth to feed in a land plagued by starvation and poverty. If she leaves, she will never see any of them again. Heartbroken, Brigid boards the ship that will take her to a new life in Australia comforted only by the thought her cousin Jamie will make the journey with her.

Her skill as a lacemaker soon draws attention, but life doesn’t always run smoothly in the harsh new landscape. Brigid must learn to conquer her fears and overcome the stigma of being a servant, a female and Irish if she is to fulfil her dream.

A new start in New Zealand offers hope - until the day the man who seeks her downfall finds her.
