Kindle eBook – September Will Tell


  • The multiple challenges, romantic and professional, of a feisty, female hedgeschool teacher in early 19th century Ireland.

    “September Will Tell is teeming with fascinating characters. It moves at a very lively pace … a very extensively and well-researched novel.”
    Mary Lavery Carrig. Poet, dramatist, teacher.

    “The text is well laid out in numerous short chapters in a distinctive writing style which makes it very readable. The liaison dangereuse between Etain and Giles has the makings of a Hollywood movie filmed at a Tarbert location. ”
    Patrick Lynch. Local historian, author.

    “I really enjoyed reading it very much. A remarkable piece of work with a central character whom I have to confess that I have fallen in love with! Intelligent, beautiful, feisty, poetic, forthright, sensuous, strong, serious, driven, non-orthodox … and Irish! ”
    Simon Marchant. International Consultant in Development, teacher … and English!

    “All in all, a most interesting and evocative novel illuminating Irish life at a time of momentous change and transition. Containing material that would transfer with ease for dramatization, the novel resonates with the profound themes of Irish history.”
    Dr Patrick O’Donovan. Schools Inspector, historical author.

    “I have very much enjoyed reading this book. I found it to be a compelling read, aided also by the authentic Tarbert locations. It is a work of great imagination with both plot and dialogue really superb. The more “delicate” issues are handled with great skill. It deserves a wide readership.”
    Michael Christopher Keane. Lecturer University College Cork, historical author.
