I finished writing my lesbian historical novel Time of Grace 20 years ago, which is astonishing to me. Set at the time of the Easter Rising of 1916, it was published by a small press in Ireland, and subsequently released in the US in paperback format. In 2013, I brought out an ebook edition. Now it’s on Audible for your listening pleasure, narrated by P. J. Morgan.
Morgan’s stirring delivery brings alive the forbidden romance of idealistic young Londoner Caroline Singleton, working outside the home for the first time as a governess and mourning the loss of her brother in battle, and street-smart Dublin girl Grace Sheridan, away from home too, working as a housemaid in a big country house. The story takes place against the backdrop of World War 1 and a restless Ireland poised to break away from English rule and create its own destiny. Will the lovers triumph or will convention, and their own striking differences, defeat them?
Red City Review called Time of Grace “An exquisite and heart-wrenching tale. …full of tantalizing plot lines and moments that will stay with the reader for a long time to come.”
