Mary Pat Kelly draws upon family heritage to continue the
story of Nora Kelly--begun in Of Irish Blood--with a
striking novel of historical fiction in Irish Above
After ten years in Paris, where she learned photography and
became part of the movement that invented modern art,
Chicago-born, Irish-American Nora Kelly is at last returning
home. Her skill as a photographer will help her cousin Ed
Kelly in his rise to Mayor of Chicago. But when she captures
the moment an assassin’s bullet narrowly misses
President-elect Franklin Roosevelt and strikes Anton Cermak
in February 1933, she enters a world of international
intrigue and danger.
Now, she must balance family obligations against her
encounters with larger-than-life historical characters, such
as Joseph Kennedy, Big Bill Thompson, Al Capone, Mussolini,
and the circle of women who surround F.D.R. Nora moves
through the Roaring Twenties, the Great Depression, and
World War II, but it’s her unexpected trip to Ireland that
transforms her life.
