Martha is best read after The Stationmaster's Cottage.
It is four years since Martha Ryan’s world crashed around her. Fleeing to England, she left everything behind. Her beloved seaside town of Rivers End, her big sister, Dorothy, and the one man she loves beyond reason.
She finds a new home in Ireland. There, she buys a cottage, embarking on a career as a teacher in the small town that reminds of her childhood. She travels, finds friendships, relationships, and adventures.
But dreams haunt her. Deep down, she longs for her home town in Australia, and to see Dorothy again. Will a life well lived be enough, or is one letter the turning point to risk everything she’s come to love?
'Martha' is a short companion story covering fifty years in about sixty pages. It fills in the missing years of Martha Ryan.
