Countless readers have been delighted by Father Andrew M. Greeley's bestselling tales of Nuala Anne McGrail, a fey, Irish-speaking woman blessed with the gift of second sight, and her husband and accomplice, Dermot Michael Coyne.

In Irish Tweed, Nuala Anne and her daughter have taken up karate to fight off schoolyard bullies who are harassing the family, while their incredibly shy nanny, Julie, is courted by a new fellow. Dermot pores over a memoir of a famine refugee whose family died of a mysterious fever, looking for clues into the illness' real cause.

Father Greeley's many fans look forward to each installment, and Irish Tweed is another captivating tale in a series by one of America's best loved storytellers.

About the Author:

Priest, sociologist, author, and journalist, Father Andrew M. Greeley (1928-2013) was the author of over 50 bestselling novels and more than 100 works of nonfiction. His novels include the Bishop Blackie Ryan series, including The Archbishop in Andalusia; the Nuala Anne McGrail series, including Irish Tweed; the O’Malley Family Saga, including A Midwinter’s Tale; and standalones such as Home for Christmas and The Cardinal Sins.

A leading spokesperson for generations of Catholics, Father Greeley unflinchingly urged his beloved Church to become more responsive to believers’ evolving concerns. He chronicled his service to the Church in two autobiographies, Confessions of a Parish Priest and Furthermore!

From Booklist:

Greeley follows his well-established pattern in his latest Nuala Anne McGrail novel. Although the prescient Nuala Anne and her loving—if slightly bemused—husband, Dermot Michael Coyne, are busy attempting to prevent bullies from overtaking the local parish school, they still manage to find time to solve a mystery involving their nanny’s new love interest. When it appears someone is trying to kill young Finnbar Burke, Nuala Anne and Dermot, with the able assistance of Cardinal Blackie Ryan and a host of Wabash Avenue Irregulars, quietly tackle the case. As they wrestle with figurative and literal demons, their story is juxtaposed with the tale of a nineteenth-century Irish immigrant who became one of the first female physicians in the Chicago area and helped solved a perplexing medical mystery during a smallpox epidemic. Although Greeley does a nice job illuminating some little-known facts about Irish American history as he interweaves the past and the present, his penchant for stereotyping his characters detracts from the narrative flow. Still, dedicated Greeley fans will relish another cozy, feel-good visit with the zany McGrail-Coyne clan. --Margaret Flanagan

Book Description St Martin's Press, United States, 2009. Paperback. Condition: New. Reprint. Language: English. Brand new Book. Wife, mother, lover, celebrated singer, and problem solver Nuala Anne McGrail has a tender side that she often shows to her devoted friends and family. But when those under her protection are in danger, she becomes a veritable Irish Tiger, akin to the fierce warrior women of ancient Erin. With Dermot, her loyal husband, in tow, there are few mysteries she can't untangle. The couple will need all their resources when they come to the aid of two loving senior citizens, whose unexpected romance has been targeted by an unknown enemy. John Patrick Donlan and Maria Angelica Connors were both grandparents when they met, and their passionate connection took them each by surprise. But Donlan's daughters and in-laws bitterly oppose the match.and someone will stop at nothing to destroy their marriage, their thriving careers, and maybe even their lives. More than a touch fey, Nuala senses genuine evil at work here, and so do the keen senses of her ever-present Irish wolfhounds. As the attacks grow ever more serious, it may be up to one gifted woman and a pair of retired police dogs to prevent a touching love story from ending in unspeakable tragedy.
