Publisher's Description

All she ever desired was to play her fiddle . . . But her love of music may cost her everything. In 1880, seventeen-year-old Honora (Nora) Gallagher captivates Ireland's attention when news of her father's untimely and tragic death spreads across the countryside. According to her father's will, Nora must now find and marry a suitor within a year if she is to inherit her family's estate, Kings Castle, or be forced to hand it over to a distant and unfamiliar cousin. Distraught, Nora must now choose between following her dream of studying music in Dublin or saving her beloved home through a rushed marriage. The combination of her father's mysterious death, missing family money, and an abrupt end to the castle's Fair Day program leads Nora to question the motives of people she once trusted. Nora quickly realizes there is only one solution to such a tangled mess: sacrifice. Nora is forced to choosewill she remain loyal to her father and the servants who are counting on her or will she follow her heart and chase her dream?

    This review was written for Good-Bye, Lover.
    "...I was beginning to feel as though this call to adventure was more or less a quest to awaken from within." (Good-Bye, Lover, p.140)

    Layered within this book are themes of awakening of spirit and love, following God's path, and trusting in Him. From a deep loss, Nora arrives at the cusp of womanhood where she finds some dreams are just that and some dreams are promises.

    I enjoyed the way the lyrical prose brought to life the deep richness of the Irish brogue and its emerald beauty. Emotion and logic danced a waltz through each page. As Nora faced each day learning what it meant to be who she was called to be I felt as though I was walking that path along with her. I even cheered for her when her Irish temper allowed her to make a stand for what was right no matter the cost.

    The title added another layer of symbolism. Giving up a dream doesn't mean giving up a life.

    As Jack said, who I found to be the perfect allegory to Christ, "know this, even though you may not see me, I am always with you."

    Nora learned that He would always be with her and new dreams would unfold.

    Highly recommended for anyone. A perfect and sweet romantic tale written as from the days of old.
