The Bitter Dawning

(1989)
A novel by

 
 
Grainne MacDermott, newly dismissed from her position as lady's maid in England, returned home to western Ireland in February 1847 - to a tragic land rent by hunger and rebellion. Starvation stalked the countryside, which lay helpless in the iron grip of the potato famine.

As resourceful as she was proudly beautiful, Grainne found work on the government's infamous roadbuilding scheme, then later as housekeeper to the lustful Michael Kearney. And amid the desolation she also found love. Con Shonley, tall and handsome, burned with a wish to help set Ireland free despite his half-English heritage. His involvement with the rebels would threaten his chances of happiness with Grainne, who envisaged a safe future far away across the Atlantic. But she would stop at nothing to help her man . . .

Sara Fraser is the pen-name of marine commando and foreign legionnaire Roy Clews. Fraser is the author of Tildy, The Surgeon's Apprentice, Til Death Do us Part and The Healing Nightfall , among many others. Fraser has written a number of mysteries as well as a number of novels influenced by a life of travel and work all over the world.
