For seventeen-year-old Delk Sinclair, studying abroad in Ireland means one thing: escape. Delk is tired of hearing about her friends? debutante parties, watching her pregnant stepmother redecorate her mother?s house, and having to smile sweetly even though she doesn?t think she?ll ever get over losing her mother. Ireland is Delk?s chance to be happy. With the stunning green landscape as backdrop, Delk revels in all things Irish, from living in a real Irish castle, to celebrating St. Paddy?s Day in Galway, to enjoying Irish music and dance, to studying Yeats and shearing a sheep! So when Delk begins to fall for a very handsome Irishman, she wonders if there?s more to the Emerald Isle than it first seemed. It is fun, to be sure, but will those smiling Irish eyes really be able to heal her broken heart?

Love this book so much
I think I’ve read it 5 times by now
From the first page to the last I was hooked!! I couldn't put it down! I fell in love with Delk and all her friends (and her love interest). It make me want to hop on the next flight to Ireland soo bad! One of the best books I have read right up there with Twilight!
When Irish guys are Smiling
This book is amazing. It teaches you about grief and moving forward and letting things sink in. If you've seen sadness then you can be happy, if you have seen death then you will live life to the fullest. Nothing can be more important and this book teaches this. It also describes and places you in the magical land of Ireland which is also called the Emerald Isle, it really makes you want to Ireland.
