あらすじ・解説

Queenstown, Co Cork. Ireland, 1916.

Sixteen-year-old Harp Devereaux is growing up in a country in turmoil. Her mother Rose is struggling to navigate single parenthood, run the Cliff House, and stay out of the way of the authorities. Harp’s uncle, Ralph Devereaux, has only one thing on his mind. 

The port of Queenstown bustles with activity as people traverse the Atlantic either in search of new lives on foreign shores or returning to old familiar ones in Ireland. The Cliff House is fast gaining a reputation as a wonderful place to stay, and the business is going from strength to strength. Rose and Harp have turned their fortunes around and for the first time, they are prosperous and independent. But all is not well. 

Civil and military unrest across the country in the wake of the Easter Rising is threatening to bubble over, and everyone is on edge. The British soldiers are making their presence felt in unpleasant ways, and the return of Ralph Devereaux to what he sees as his ancestral home poses a serious threat. Just as they are managing the situation, a series of unforeseen events places both Harp and her mother in grave peril. Ralph suddenly holds all the power and is not afraid to wield it. They desperately need help, and there’s only one place they can go to get it.

From a tense Queenstown to the vibrant Irish community in Boston, from wartime Liverpool, to the streets of Dublin seething with revolution, The West’s Awake continues the spellbinding Queenstown Story.

Books One and Two are Terrific!

I really enjoyed the first two in this fast-paced well-written series full of fiction and history, and narrated by the perfect voice! I am looking forward to the next yarn.

50/50 read: Loved it/ wanted to return it.

The West’s Awake alternated between “can’t put it down” and “not sure I want to finish.”
The story of Harp going to America on a mission and of Rose and Harp’s villainous Father we’re highly interesting and full of twists. The reader was fantastic when she had the woman’s voice and the brogue, but the way the “mans”” voice sounded was off and comical. No normal man sounds like that . The beginning of the book with all the “woman’s rights” talk was boring and not too realistic for the time period. The politics may have been part of the story, but was not enjoyable. So not sure about getting the next in the series but it’s possible.

Great continuing story!

The story is a great one, but the constant quotes by Harp begin to become ridiculous. I plan to read book 3 and 4 to see how this all plays out. I was expecting what the epilogue revealed.

The West’s Awake was well worth the wait!

I enjoyed this story and the narration was excellent!
Please continue with these caricatures as soon as possible. Waiting for Book 3 is so difficult.
