About the Book
Faced with an uncertain future, sometimes all you have left is the courage to dream.
Brianna and Colleen O'Leary know their Irish immigrant father expects them to marry well. Recently he's put even more pressure on them, insinuating that the very future of their Long Island horse farm, Irish Meadows, rests in their ability to land prosperous husbands. Both girls, however, have different visions for their futures.
Brianna, a quiet girl with a quick mind, dreams of attending college. Vivacious Colleen, meanwhile, is happy to marry – as long as her father's choice meets her exacting standards of the ideal groom. When former stable hand Gilbert Whelan returns from business school and distant relative Rylan Montgomery visits Long Island during his seminary training, the two men quickly complicate everyone's plans.
As the farm slips ever closer to ruin, James O'Leary grows more desperate. It will take every ounce of courage for both sisters to avoid being pawns in their father's machinations and instead follow their hearts. And even if they do, will they inevitably find their dreams too distant to reach?
Susan Anne Mason’s novel, Irish Meadows, tells a captivating and charming tale of family and romance and dreams, set early in the twentieth century on scenic Long Island, and I just could not put it down, greedily finishing it in a day. Sisters Brianna and Colleen O’Leary take two of the novel’s leading roles as they find themselves at odds with each other and their father’s desire to dictate and control their futures. The arrival of two hard-working, honorable and far too handsome men, Gilbert Whelan and Rylan Montgomery, to the family home complicates matters and sets the entire O’Leary family on a course for conflict, faith and reconciliation. All-around heartwarming and inspirational, Irish Meadows will certainly offer readers of historical romance a delightful end-of-summer read. I thoroughly enjoyed it and cannot wait to pick up the next book in Mason’s Courage to Dream series, A Worthy Heart.
