“A sweeping historical love story that hits all the marks.” –Publisher’s Weekly starred review

Your feet will bring you to where your heart is.
Ireland 1846. With Ireland ravaged by famine and England unsympathetic to its plight, Kathleen Deacey faces a devastating choice – leave her country to find work or risk dying there. Despising the English for refusing to help Ireland, she crosses the ocean to support her family and search for her missing fiancé.

But when her voyage goes awry, she must accept help from an English whaling captain, Jack Montgomery, who represents everything she despises – and with whom she is reluctantly falling in love. As Kathleen fights to save her family back in Ireland, she finds herself facing yet another devastating choice – remain loyal to her country or follow her heart.

Award-winning author Pamela Ford captures the anguish of a devastating period in Irish history and delivers a historical saga of hope, loyalty, the strength of the human spirit, and the power of love. With more than a half million copies of her books sold worldwide, she is known for creating stories that are emotional and moving.

Author Interview

What made you write a book series about the Irish during the 19th century?
I first started researching Irish history because I have deep Irish roots on both sides of my family and a strong interest in all things Irish. The more I learned, the more I realized that there was so much more to the Irish immigrant experience than I, and most people, ever knew. It was hard to believe what my ancestors likely went through. Many readers have written to say the same thing.

 

In your book you make reference to the Adoption Act of 1851. How did you come up with this idea?
Since the story involves an orphan, I was researching adoption law in the 19th century and discovered that before the middle of the century, children “adopted” by families were not legally entitled to the same rights and protections as natural born children. In 1851, Massachusetts became the first state in the country to pass a law protecting the welfare of adopted children. It was exactly the emotional twist I needed for the story.

 

Where do you get inspiration for your stories?
Ideas come to me from almost anywhere. My historical book ideas almost always come out of reading a history book or article that triggers the question in my mind, “What if...?” As soon as I get that first nugget, I’m off and running. Plot almost always comes first for me, and then character.

 

How long have you been writing?
I majored in Advertising in college and got a job at an advertising agency. Once my husband and I started having children, I quit working full time and began freelance writing to have some flexibility. That’s also when I wrote my first book. And that was, gulp, more than twenty-five years ago.

 

What genre do you write and why?
I write historical romance, contemporary romance, romantic comedy, and am considering writing a fantasy novel. Can you tell I get easily bored? I read many different kinds of books, and that’s how I approach my writing as well. The more the merrier!

 

What is your favorite thing about writing?
I’m going to steal my answer from the very witty writer, Dorothy Parker, who said, “I hate writing, I love having written.” There is nothing quite so rewarding as finishing a big project.
