Description

The Phelans have owned Mossgrove for generations. The small, rural Irish farm has been the pride of them all until Ned's wife, Martha, arrives and begins to undermine generations of hard work and happiness.

She resents the deep history of the place and sets about making it her own, shutting out what is left of Ned's family.

She is particularly jealous of Ned's sister, Kate, a local nurse and doting aunt to Martha's children.

When Ned dies suddenly, Martha puts Mossgrove up for sale in hopes that it will be bought by the neighbouring Conways, who have long coveted the Phelan farm.

What she does not realize are the lengths to which Kate and the hired hand Jack will go to keep the land in the family ...

Great book about the ups and downs of a farm family in Ireland. The book can be a little slow so this is one you want to read when you're relaxed and have patience to get through it. The Woman of the House is a sweet story set in Ireland about the Phelan family and their neighbors the Conways. I look forward to the 2nd book in the series.

This Irish author has opened up a new line of books for me. I will definately be reading more by her - a lovely book.Back Cover Blurb:It is a story of love for the land, love for the Irish countryside and village life of over 40 years ago. This love is handed down from generation to generation but that love can cause jealousy between neighbours, which can turn to violence. The family - the Phelans. The house - Mossgrove.
