Book Five of the Rose Of Skibbereen series covers the 1980s and 90s, as Rosie Morley opens a bar and restaurant in New Hope, PA, and meets a handsome futurist named Jack Caldwell. He believes in the promise of the future, while she hears psychic promptings from the past. This story encompasses violence in Northern Ireland, the quest for true love, the healing of old wounds, and unexpected connections between the characters. Rosie must decide whether to trust Jack's love for her, and she must heal the breach with her son Pete and save him from the violent path he has chosen. The connections and echoes with the previous Rose Of Skibbereen books keep getting deeper as the family expands and each character searches for love and redemption in his or her own way.
