The Angel of Innisfree, a Victorian-era historical romance novel, weaves a story of love overcoming every obstacle during one of the most tumultuous periods in history, when revolutions in Europe and the Civil War in the United States transformed the basic foundations of society, while inventions such as the telegraph changed the way the world worked. It’s 1848, and the Irish Potato Famine has claimed more lives than anyone cares to count, while English landlords continue to evict their tenants with a ruthless lack of compassion.Young Brian O’Rourke, the Catholic, ingenious youngest son in an impoverished family of Ribbonmen, meets Elizabeth Reilly, a talented Protestant pianist from London, while she’s visiting her father in Ireland. After secretly promising themselves to each other at the age of sixteen, their twisted fates encounter unforeseen obstacles after Elizabeth returns to London to study piano with Chopin, while Brian immigrates to New York on a famine ship. Brian joins the nascent telegraph industry, where he subsequently uses his expertise to help slaves escape on the Underground Railroad. He travels to California to work on the Transcontinental Telegraph and to Washington to help President Lincoln during the Civil War, while Elizabeth launches a successful career as a concert pianist in Europe and America.This enduring romance captures the passionate spirits of two people determined to find each other regardless of the forces conspiring to keep them apart.
