About the book:
Irish Meadows (Bethany House, July 2015)
Faced with an uncertain future, sometimes all you have left is the courage to dream.
Brianna and Colleen O'Leary know their Irish immigrant father expects them to marry well. Recently he's put even more pressure on them, insinuating that the very future of their Long Island horse farm, Irish Meadows, rests in their ability to land prosperous husbands. Both girls, however, have different visions for their futures.
Brianna, a quiet girl with a quick mind, dreams of attending college. Vivacious Colleen, meanwhile, is happy to marry---as long as her father's choice meets her exacting standards of the ideal groom. When former stable hand Gilbert Whelan returns from business school and distant relative Rylan Montgomery visits Long Island during his seminary training, the two men
quickly complicate everyone's plans.
As the farm slips ever closer to ruin, James O'Leary grows more desperate. It will take every ounce of courage for both sisters to avoid being pawns in their father's machinations and instead follow their hearts. And even if they do, will they inevitably find their dreams too distant to reach?

I was excited to read Susan Anne Mason's debut novel, "Irish Meadows" and I enjoyed the novel and am eager for novel #2 as I am curious to see which characters will play prominent roles and if the story will continue. James has expectations for his daughters' futures; however, the girls, Brianna and Colleen, do not have quite the same ideas. Set in 1911, things were much different than now as far as marriage, arrangements that go along with that and the family's role in this whole thing. I thought that the author did a great job with setting the scene and bringing the time period to life. I enjoyed all of the historical details in this book and the relationships and the development of the characters. The sisters are alike, yet so very different as is the journey they are both on. I loved the additions of Rylan and Gilbert to the story and to their lives and the twists and turns throughout. I recommend this book to historical fiction fans and Susan Anne Mason is an author I am going to follow.
