My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I was gifted this book to read by Shadow Mountain Publishing via Net Galley.
For a while it was hard going, I found it a struggle to get into the book, I've never read a book by Sarah M Eden before so wasn't sure what to expect. Then things started to happen......
Katie Macauley was only 8 years old when her Father lost his land, he also lost one of his daughters too, the story unfold this as you read along. She is grown now and wants to return home to her Irish heritage and her family.
It was well written, just took ages to open up, but once it did, I enjoyed it.,

But if she wants to return home to Ireland to make amends with her estranged family, she'll need to convince the influential Joseph Archer to hold true to his word and keep her on his payroll as his housekeeper despite her Irish roots. The town is caught in an ongoing feud between the Irish and the "Reds" the frontiersmen who would rather see all the Irish run out of town and the Irish immigrants who are fighting to make a home for themselves in the New World. When Joseph agrees to keep Katie on as his housekeeper, the feud erupts anew, and Katie becomes the reluctant figurehead for the Irish townsfolk. As the violence escalates throughout the town, Katie must choose between the two men who have been vying for her love though only one might be able to restore hope to her heart
