Donal O'Flaherty looked down from the knoll where his army was camped on what had once been the lordship of Kildare, the most fertile farmland in all of Ireland. No cattle grazed on the grassland. No villagers or farmers toiled in the fields. There was only blackened wasteland where Henry's troops had torched the plains. He felt a strange melancholy for this land that wasn't his. Yesterday seared by fire, tomorrow stained with blood.
I'm reading an ARC from NetGalley courtesy of Sourcebooks, who is giving this author's backlist a new lease on life. I enjoyed Baker's Irish Lady last year and am enjoying this one as well. Time travel between Northern Ireland: 1970s and 1530s. Very exciting and romantic! Love the Irish!
