A STORY OF ENDURING LOVE, SIBLING LOYALTY AND A SECRET PACT THAT LASTS A LIFETIME Kilbride House is set on the mystical Dingle Peninsula. Victoria Goulding, a Protestant, falls in love with Canice Meagher, born on the Blasket Islands and a Roman Catholic. To be together they must elope. Before their escape, the hand of fate plays its cards and changes their lives irrevocably. Sixty-three years later, in the leafy suburbs of New York, Edith Goulding, Victoria’s sister, has died. Edith left Ireland in the winter of 1955 all those years ago, never to return. In her will she has insisted that her daughter Catherine and granddaughter Lainey visit Kilbride. Kilbride House, despite all its grandeur, holds shocking memories within its walls – memories that have slipped through the cracks of time. As the ghosts awaken the lies begin to unravel, and everything is altered. The past cannot remain untold. PRAISE FOR KILBRIDE HOUSE “Sheila Forsey’s stunning debut novel Kilbride House vividly evokes 1950’s Ireland. Comparisons to Colm Tóibín’s masterpiece Brooklyn are inevitable and justified. I urge you to pick up a copy.” Chris Sherry, editor, Ulster Tatler show more
