Publisher's Summary

All of her life, Irish American Moira Doherty has relished her mother's descriptions of Ireland. When her mother dies unexpectedly in the summer of 1920, Moira decides to fulfill her mother's wish that she become the teacher in Ballymann, her home village in Donegal, Ireland.  

After an arduous voyage, Moira arrives to a new home and a new job in an ancient country. Though a few locals offer a warm welcome, others are distanced by superstition and suspicion. Rumors about Moira's mother are unspoken in her presence but threaten to derail everything she's journeyed to Ballymann to do. Moira must rely on the kindness of a handful of friends - and the strength of Sean, an unsettlingly handsome thatcher who keeps popping up unannounced - as she seeks to navigate a life she'd never dreamed of...but perhaps was meant to live.  

Jennifer Deibel's debut novel delights the senses, bringing to life the sights, sounds, smells, and language of a lush country and a colorful people. Historical romance fans will embrace her with open arms.

A Dance in Donegal

Spot On! Another excellent book 📖 by Jennifer Donegal. It has twist & turns that I didn’t anticipate. I especially enjoyed learning so much about the Irish customs and superstitions. It also means a lot to me to have a strong spiritual presence in the story like this one has. I have read the two books that Jennifer Deibel has written so far and I have thoroughly enjoyed both of them. I look forward to her next book, “ THE MAID OF BOLLYMACOOL.” It should come out in the spring of 2023.
