Mary Rourke knows the loneliness of surviving as a woman on her own in the late 19th century. Not by choice but by trust - broken trust. Years ago, she gave her heart away, only to have it shattered by quarrel and duty. Now her former sweetheart is back, along with a mysterious stranger who may or may not hold the key to her future. Journey with Mary through a series of unexpected adventures that will launch her from the simple life of outport Newfoundland to the sophisticated realm of upper class Boston. Challenging the dictates of tradition in pursuit of becoming a new person, she must ask herself if what she truly needs already lives within.

About the Author

Ida Linehan Young

First and foremost, Ida Linehan Young is a mother to three adult children, Sharon, Stacey and Shawna, and a grandmother to the most extraordinary little boy, Parker. By day she works in the information technology sector in the federal government and has recently forayed into learning the French language in the hopes of becoming bilingual. She started writing several years ago and published her memoir, No Turning Back: Surviving the Linehan Family Tragedy, in 2014. Influenced by her love of local history and the familial art of storytelling passed down by her father and her maternal grandfather, she escapes to writing any chance she can get. She enjoys writing historical fiction to keep the past alive for generations to come.
