How Do The Irish Fare In America?

Widow's Walk Front CoverI can never resist a novel that has an Irish connection so I was intrigued when I heard about the recent release of Widow’s Walk. It follows the story of how an Irish woman fares when she crosses the ocean to America and makes her life in that new land.

Mary Flanagan, caught between her sense of religion and obligation on one hand and her very human desire for love and life on the other, is in emotional limbo. When she meets Arnie Berger, who becomes her lover and philosophic guide, Mary’s world seems to be transformed.

Widow’s Walk, is a story of good people who struggle – sometimes successfully and often not – to deal with the challenges in their lives. The novel reflects how family, friendship, love, faith, and character affect that struggle.

Drop by on Friday, 4th September to read an excerpt from this new novel by Kenneth Weene.
