As regulars of the blog will know I am a huge fan of Irish fiction and have been ever since I was a child, partially due to my Northern Irish mother's influence who introduced me to authors such as Maeve Binchy and Patricia Scanlan.
To this day my love for reading anything Irish continues, either stories set in Ireland or written by Irish authors, so how could I not include an Irish book as part of my blogiversary celebrations ;-)
I recently interviewed Jennifer Burke about her second novel Levi's Gift and thanks to the lovely Ailbhe at Poolbeg I have a copy to give away to one lucky follower (I haven't even read this one myself yet!).
Inside those walls was a man, as young as I was, learning how to become a man of God. He owns my heart to this day. Levi's Gift tells the story of Lena and her daughter Mattie who has just given birth to a stillborn son. Following Mattie's spiral into depression, Lena takes her from their home in America to Italy in an attempt to rescue her and rekindle in her the sense of family and identity she lost after the death of her child. But this requires Lena to reveal what she experienced as a young woman in Italy the love she has secretly treasured all her life. She hopes that by encountering the past together, they can find hope for the future.
