Dr. Matt Galvin is taken by the charms of the beautiful student nurse Jenny Fitzgerald at Dublin City Hospital, fate intervenes and they go their separate ways. Then Hugh Bagnall, the suave and handsome horse trainer, enters the scene. This is a romance of heartache, loss and bitter-sweet love.
This book has all the drama of hospital life, the wild racy world of the track, the turbulence of war torn Angola and the calm but treacherous seas beyond Lambay Island.
The author creates the shifts in mood and tension, from the rigidity of hospital life at Dublin City Hospital to the tragic past of Ballyclare, but all the while the spectre of Coolavella was never far from the heroine’s heart.
Here a web of sorrow, humour, sympathy, and courage is created as the characters move in and out of a setting with all the dramatic ingredients of a romantic novel.
