Nova Scotia. All 229 men, women and children on board perished, including Ivy Bannister's sister, Patty. Set in Dublin, New York and the South Shore of Nova Scotia, Blunt Trauma is the true story of how one family's life was ravaged by the terrible event. When Ivy Bannister switched on BBC radio from her home in Dublin the following morning, she has no idea that that the first thing she'd hear would change her life forever. An ocean away from the tragedy that claimed her sister's life, Ivy soon left her family to be with her 80-year-old mother in New York City. What follows is a poignant day-by-day account of how she coped with the tragic death of her sister, and the painful practicalities of identifying remains and disposing of possessions. Meetings with lawyers and airline officials prove difficult, as is the daunting task of clearing out Patty's apartment. Overwhelmed by a lifetime's worth of accumulated belongings and the "heartbreak of unravelling" her sister's possessions, Ivy soon realises that Patty's home was a shrine to the past and of future wishes.

From beloved storytellers Mary Higgins Clark, America's Queen of Suspense, and her daughter, bestselling author Carol Higgins Clark, two favorite suspense novels filled with holiday cheer.
The twenty-eight people killed and wounded on Bloody Sunday were primarily young people. Eighteen of them were under thirty; of those, twelve were between the ages of 15 and 20. This book poignantly brings them to life by telling the life stories of the victims killed on Bloody Sunday. The stories of these people are both heartwarming and heartbreaking at the same time as family members and friends talk about the loved ones they lost because they decided to join in a protest for equal rights. The actions of the British Government and what they did after the slaughter of these innocent people is just sickening and certainly makes you realize why organizations such as the I.R.A. exist in the first place.
The Irish Century series is the story of the Irish people's epic struggle for independence through the tumultuous course of the twentieth century.

It now concludes with 1999: A Novel of the Celtic Tiger and the Search for Peace. 1999 brings the story from 1972 to the disarmament talks and beginnings of reconciliation among the Irish at the end of the twentieth century.
