Abandoned by her father and neglected by her self-centered, unstable mother, Sheila McGee cannot wait to escape the drudgery of her mill village life in Northern Ireland. Her classic Irish beauty helps her win the 1941 Linen Queen competition, and the prize money that goes with it finally gives her the opportunity she's been dreaming of. But Sheila does not count on the impact of the Belfast blitz which brings World War II to her doorstep.

I too enjoyed this second novel and the author.

I enjoyed this title as much as Falvey's first novel; I'd recommend both. The problem with reading these books is that I want to jump on a plane and take in the beautiful Irish countryside described.
