Bestselling novelist Andrew M. Greeley outdoes his previous triumphs with Irish Gold, a contemporary, fresh and exciting novel of suspense and love.

Nuala Anne McGrail, a student at Dublin's Trinity College, is beautiful the way a Celtic goddess is beautiful - not that Dermot Michael Coyne of Chicago has ever seen one of those in his twenty-five years - unless you count his grandmother Nell, who left Ireland during the Troubles with her husband Liam O'Riada, and who would never tell why they left. Somebody else remembers, though - or why is Dermot set upon by thugs?

At the Publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management Software (DRM) applied.

"THE IRISH," I insisted to the black-haired young woman whose face might have belonged to a pre-Christian Celtic goddess, "are different. They look like some of the rest of us and they speak a language that's remotely like ours....

Praise for Irish Gold

“Father Greeley has given great attention to the role of imagination in the life of faith. What he is doing is re-evangelizing the imagination, using fiction to address the faith and the mysteries of the faith. That's an extraordinarily significant project.” —Cardinal Francis George, archbishop of Chicago

“Nobody has ever left the church because of an Andrew Greeley novel, but many have been attracted back to it by him.” —Reverend Ron Rolheiser, O.M.I.

“Michael Collins is now recognized as the lost leader of the 20th century. If he had lived, it is probable that Collins could have ended the Irish troubles. He had the vision and leadership skills to stop the killing and bring all parties to the negotiating table. Drawing from the letters of Collins, Greeley portrays the Irish leader as romantic, sensitive and introspective. Greeley's Collins is also tough.” —Chicago Sun-Times on Irish Gold

“A tale of young love and faith with a cast of characters, Irish and American, that very well may open Greeley's work to a generation of new readers.” —Chicago Tribune on Irish Gold

“A first-rate adventure story.” —Baltimore Sun on Irish Gold
