ABOUT THIS BOOK
Mary Kate Malone is seventeen and bitterly unhappy that her father has married again after the death of her mother. On her last day at school, she decides to leave home in Tarabeg on the west coast of Ireland and head for Liverpool to find her mother's sister.
But absolutely nothing goes to plan. Within hours of disembarking, she finds herself penniless and alone, with no place to stay and no idea how she will survive.
Meanwhile, back in Ireland, where old sins cast long shadows, a long-buried secret is about to come to light and a day of reckoning, in the shape of a stranger from America, will set an unstoppable chain of events in motion.
From Liverpool to Ireland with some Boston thrown in for good measure, MARY KATE by Nadine Dorries is another wonderful historical tale that will effortlessly pull you back in time.
In America, a man soon learns more about his Irish ancestry and is determined to fulfil his promise to his dead father but are the people back in Ireland ready for his arrival and all that it holds? While at the same time seventeen-year-old Mary Kate is determined to fly the nest and make a different life for herself that doesn't include living forever in the small Irish village of Tarabeg and so she hatches a plan that will lead her into all sorts of danger and trouble. As nothing seems to be going to plan will Mary Kate find her place in this world and realise the strength of family and love?
Engaging, descriptive, and with perfect pace, MARY KATE by Nadine Dorries is a story about life and the strength needed to do what you must to try and be happy. There is plenty of drama, danger, secrets, and friendship, all entwined with the richness in detail and the often harsh reality of what life was like back then. While this is a sequel, this story can be read as a standalone story which is what I did and I fully enjoyed it from start to finish. Definitely a must for historical fiction fans.
Nadine Dorries was born in Liverpool in the 1950s and raised on a council estate, the daughter of a bus driver. Her first novel, THE FOUR STREETS, was inspired by memories of her childhood, particularly her Irish grandmother who she was very close to.
Nadine trained as a nurse, then followed with a successful career in which she established and then sold her own business. She has been the MP for Mid-Befordshire since 2005 and has three daughters.
