Women's Fiction Historical
It's 1903. Nora Kelly, twenty-four, is talented, outspoken,
progressive, and climbing the ladder of opportunity, until
she falls for an attractive but dangerous man who sends her
running back to the Old World her family had fled. Nora
takes on Paris, mixing with couturiers, artists, and "les
femmes Americaines" of the Left Bank such as Gertrude Stein
and Sylvia Beach. But when she stumbles into the
centuries-old Collège des Irlandais, a good-looking scholar,
an unconventional priest, and Ireland's revolutionary women
challenge Nora to honor her Irish blood and join the
struggle to free Ireland.
Author Mary Pat Kelly weaves historical characters such as
Maud Gonne, William Butler Yeats, Countess Markievicz,
Michael Collins, and Eamon de Valera, as well as Gabrielle
Chanel, Gertrude Stein, James Joyce, and Nora Barnicle, into
Of Irish Blood, a vivid and compelling story inspired by the
life of her great-aunt.
