Montrose Manor in the Southwest of Ireland offers an abundance of resources, but wealth and privilege fail to provide solace for young Laura Meegan when an accident claims the life of her mother. Stricken with grief, her father distances himself from Laura and falls headlong into the intense—even dangerous—world of thoroughbred horse racing.
After her mother’s death, Laura finds her own new world to explore and soon befriends Liam Delaney, the caretaker’s son. Ireland springs to life in this remarkable tale of self-indulgence, young love, and a life of vulnerability that will transport you back to this enchanted isle of the late 20th century.
Who’s to Say Where the Wind Will Blow is a finely crafted story that delivers a glimpse of an Ireland that has dealt with decades of social injustices, class warfare, and the widespread challenges facing the uneducated.
