Legacy of Hunger: An adventure in 1846 Ireland

Press Release: April 20, 2016

New York, April 19, 2016 -- New York State author Christy Nicholas, in conjunction with Tirgearr Publishing, has released Legacy of Hunger, the first novel of the Druid's Brooch series. The second book, Legacy of Truth, is due to be released in June 2016. Christy has previously published bestselling travel guides to Ireland and Scotland, and has one other novel published, Better To Have Loved.

"Ireland is no promised land in 1846. It is wracked by a crippling potato blight, and people are dying. But Valentia McDowell doesn’t know that.

From her father’s prosperous farm in Ohio, young Valentia is haunted by tales of an abandoned family and a lost heirloom. She travels to her grandmother’s homeland with her brother, Conor, and two servants, to find both. Her delight in the exciting journey on one of the first steam ships to cross the Atlantic is shattered by a horrible tragedy.

What she encounters upon her arrival in Ireland is both more and less than she had hoped. Valentia finds both enemies and allies, amid horrors and delights, and a small bit of magic. She finds a richer heritage than she had ever imagined, but it comes with a price.

When she finally reaches her goal, a terrible price is demanded. She must pay or forfeit, and both decisions have strong consequences for her and her friends."
