Shannon Farrell's latest
novel The Hungry Heart
Available March 1, 2022
HerStory Books is pleased to announce that Book 2 of the
Hunger of the Heart Saga, "The Hungry Heart," is now available
in paperback, just in time for St. Patrick's Day.
The incredible saga first started in
"Hunger for Love" continues as Emer
and Dalton reach Canada, but have a
whole new set of challenges that
threaten their love for each other.
Readers will be swept away by this historical romance on the high
seas, a boat full of Irish refuges from the deadly Potato Famine find
adventure, and even love.
The author, Shannon Farrell, has taught and written
about 19th-century Irish history for more than 20 years,
and takes pride in using original eye-witness accounts
of the events of that period to write stirring fiction that
captures the lives and loves of the ordinary people living
in those times.
"I loved how resourceful everyone had to be living aboard ship and
at the Grosse Ile quarantine station. It was also fun to write a real
villain in the form of Frederick Randall."
The heroine, Emer, is made up, but all
of the events are accurate. Forced to
emigrate to Canada, Emer and her
family endure a harrowing journey on
board a "Coffin ship" bound for Grosse
Ile in Quebec.
Emer, working as a cabin boy to help her family's finances, meets the enigmatic
Dalton Randolph, the ship's only gentleman passenger, who's not all that he
seems. As the truth emerges, all hell breaks loose.
Who exactly IS Dalton? And why is he
REALLY on that hell ship? The
shocking revelations on both sides
force Emer and Dalton to confront their
growing feelings for each other.
Their attraction is undeniable, but what will Emer do when she discovers
the man she is falling in love with is not all he seems? Canada looks
beautiful and unspoiled, but there are all sorts of dangers lurking.
Can Emer navigate safely through this
strange new world? Including Dalton's
father Frederick, who has far different
plans for his son than to allow him to
marry an Irish peasant...?
