The Irish House by Ann O’Loughlin

Marianne has a full on life in New York doing what she loves doing - dress design. When her grandmother passes away and leaves behind a huge fading property in Ireland with vast acreage, the guardianship of two troubled nieces trying to get to grips with the loss of their own mother, and the vitriolic Katherine,the daughter who has been passed over in favor of Marianne. Facing hostility on several fronts, whilst trying to live in this remote area of Ireland, where her Aunt has been able to influence the local population against Marianne is not easy. It is a tense daily situation and the letters that Collie left behind give her some inkling as to why Collie acted the way she did. A family saga, with strong history attached to the house which is a big feature of the story. The pivotal characters including the children are very definite and within all of them a story is spun. Bringing the past, present and future into a cohesive whole. Sent by Bookouture for an unbiased review, courtesy ofNetgalley.
