Five stars and the Highly Recommended Award from The Historical Fiction Company!
Updated: Dec 21, 2021
I'm thrilled to announce that Under the Emerald Sky has received five stars and the Highly Recommended Award from The Historical Fiction Company! Here's some of what the reviewer had to say about the book:
"[...F]rom the first line to the last line, this is a book which excites and intrigues in the way a classic Historical Romance novel should do. [...] There are so many great things to say about this novel - the layers are so perfectly entwined, yet the story opens up like a blossoming rose as Ms Weber takes you by the hand and leads you through the travails of living during this turbulent time in Irish history - a time when the politics of the nobility held sway, where only a smattering of the Irish actually owned their own land, and how so many suffered from lack of decent food and housing. [...] The characters are SO believable, and the emotions, both intimate and public, are incredibly relatable; so much so that Under the Emerald Sky reaches another level in storytelling - the kind where the characters remain with you long after you have closed the book, and you are longing to know what happens next for them. [...]"
