I’m delighted to be hosting today’s stop on the blog tour for Nadine Dorries’ latest novel, Shadows in Heaven. Described as ‘a rags to riches story of family secrets’, Shadows in Heaven is set in post-war Ireland – in the west coast of Ireland to be precise, one of the places dearest to Nadine’s heart. Do check out the other book bloggers taking part in the tour.
Fans of Nadine’s book will be excited to learn that Shadows in Heaven is the first in a new sequence of novels, The Tarabeg Series, with a brilliant cast of characters and a story that will lead to Liverpool in Mary Kate and back to Ireland in The Seven Acres (due to be published in 2019).
I’m thrilled to be able to give two lucky people the chance to win a hardback copy of Shadows of Heaven. Please note the giveaway is open to UK and ROI residents only. To enter via Rafflecopter, click here. Entries close at midnight on 10th July 2018.
About the Book
In post-war Tarabeg, two women are waiting for ambitious Michael Malone to return home. Rosie is the local schoolteacher and most people think she is promised to him. Just a few have guessed that he has secretly begun to woo Sarah, whose brutal fisherman father would kill her if he knew.
Both Rosie and Sarah love Michael, both hope to become his wife and their lives will interweave in a tale of tangled secrets, old promises and new feuds. Michael Malone’s choice will have fateful consequences for everyone – especially, in due course, for his young daughter.
Format: Hardcover, ebook (384 pp.) Publisher: Head of Zeus
