Publisher Description

A Northern Irish woman's life is tangled in political and personal turmoil as she struggles to hold her family together and follow her heart.
THE YELLOW HOUSE delves into the passion and politics of Northern Ireland at the beginning of the 20th Century. Eileen O'Neill's family is torn apart by religious intolerance and secrets from the past. Determined to reclaim her ancestral home and reunite her family, Eileen begins working at the local mill, saving her money and holding fast to her dream. As war is declared on a local and global scale, Eileen cannot separate the politics from the very personal impact the conflict has had on her own life.

She is soon torn between two men, each drawing her to one extreme. One is a charismatic and passionate political activist determined to win Irish independence from Great Britain at any cost, who appeals to her warrior's soul. The other is the wealthy and handsome black sheep of the pacifist family who owns the mill where she works, and whose persistent attention becomes impossible for her to ignore.

The Yellow House

This book was a page turner for me as well as a learning experience. I found myself more and more engaged in the lives of the characters as I read along the trail of the story of Eileen and all of the others. The haunting lives of the Irish will remain with me.

A good book is hard to find ,

The yellow house

Well written and engaging. A great historical snapshot of Ireland during the turn of the century, with enough romance & intrigue thrown in to keep the reader captivated.
