Tara Henning, a children’s book illustrator, has the gift of imagination and a love of family. When she goes to Ireland to represent the American side of the Sheridan family at the funeral for her Great Aunt Fiona’s cousin, she is faced with possibly having inherited a family “gift”: special intuition. She keeps dreaming of a dark-haired man and a blond-haired woman. She doesn’t understand the dreams and doesn’t know the story behind the family brooch she must return to the family. Nor does she understand this strange attraction/connection she feels for Keefe McMurray, the grandson of her great aunt’s cousin.

Having been to Ireland myself, the author described it in such a way that brought back all of the beauty and magic of Ireland to me. The characters, the settings, the atmosphere in the small church and at the wake were nicely done. My only complaint: the story was too short. A perfectly magical Irish love story to be enjoyed in March.
