About the Author:

Anne Doughty was born in Armagh but spent many years in England before returning to live in Belfast. She is the author of A Few Late Roses (longlisted for the Irish Times literature prize), Stranger in the Place and Summer of the Hawthorn and, with Seven House, On a Clear Day and Beyond the Green Hills.

From Booklist:

Doughty continues the saga of the Hamiltons of Ballydown, Ireland. Set in the 1920s, this installment centers on Rosie, daughter of Sam Hamilton and his wife, Martha. After attending finishing school, a luxury no one else in her large family had, 16-year-old Rosie is at loose ends. She works tirelessly on her family’s farm but doesn’t have much hope for the future. With times as tough as they are, her only chance at a job is working as a housekeeper in one of the large homes in the area, something she dreads doing. Her mother constantly berates her, and one day, after a vicious beating, her father finally steps in. Rosie is to spend some time with her grandparents. They, in turn, take a long-awaited trip to Kerry. As she resumes her life at the farm, she continues to search for some direction. Slowly Rosie’s world opens up in ways she never could have imagined in this compelling and sweet tale of self-discovery. --Maria Hatton
