πŸ“– Feature Friday on Jaffareadstoo ~ The Letter Home by Rachael English

Welcome to Feature Friday

it's a warm space to a highlight a book coming soon which is on my book radar

and one I am looking forward to reading

Published on the 3rd February


She had left behind everything she loved to forge a future for the one she treasured most...

Inspired by heartbreaking true events, a rich, powerful novel of a mother's love, a baby girl, a dangerous journey from Ireland to America and a forgotten story that binds two families separated by an ocean. From the Number One bestselling and beloved author of THE AMERICAN GIRL and THE PAPER BRACELET.

A faded letter. A mother lost. A daughter found...

When journalist Jessie Daly loses everything she holds dear, she travels home to Ireland's west coast, and helps an old friend researching life during the famine. Jessie becomes drawn into the heartbreaking story of a brave young mother, Bridget Moloney, and her daughter, Norah.

On the other side of the ocean, in Boston, Kaitlin Wilson is researching her family tree. She unearths a fascinating story, but her research forces her to confront uncomfortable truths about the past, as she uncovers an unexpected connection to Ireland in famine times.

Generations before, in the small town of Boherbreen, a young mother faced a heart-wrenching choice: to watch her baby girl perish with hunger, or to start out for a new life in America, alone, in order to protect the one she loves most...


I've long been a fan of Rachael English's writing and have been involved in several of her blog tours. I was asked, at the start of December, to be involved in revealing the lovely cover of The Letter Home on social media. I'm really looking forward to sharing my thoughts about this lovely story on the 3rd February, its e-Book publication day. 

So as they this space..
