A Heritage of Wrong
by Joy Martin
Caught in a web of deception…
Rosaleen and Cathal O’Mahoney decide to return to Ireland with their daughter.
Rosaleen is beyond desperate to get back to her twin boys, Daniel and Eugene, who she’d left behind in haste years ago.
The twins were entrusted into the care of Milliora O’Brien in Ireland.
Left as young boys, seven years later and the return of their mother instils mixed emotions.
Daniel, the more compassionate and amusing of the two is excited.
Eugene, on the other hand, harbours a deep resentment towards his mother and Aoibheal, his half-sister – after all, she had their mother all to herself all this time.
Aoibheal looks forward to seeing the brothers she has heard so much about, but she is unprepared for the cold welcome that awaits her.
As the rancour deepens, Kate Keegan, a childhood friend of Daniel’s, finds herself tangled in a web of loyalty and deception.
Her friendship with Daniel was strong and stable and, as the years go by, their feelings grow.
But Kate is ambitious. It has always been her dream to go on stage, and nothing will stop her following her dreams.
Until Eugene steps in.
Bitter and full of hate, Eugene targets Kate. A talented artist, he woes Kate in with his knowledge of the theatre.
Finding a common ground, Kate innocently gravitates towards Eugene. Until he deceives her in the most unimaginable of ways…
From the theatres of Dublin and London to the stark and bloody battlefields of the First World War; from the Bohemian salons of Paris to the country estates of Clare and Dorset, this is a richly evocative portrait of life in the first two turbulent decades of the twentieth century.
