This sequel to "The Woman of the House” and “Across the River" is a story of love for the home place and of the passions and jealousies it can inspire. A story of grief and trying to cope with loss, but also of resilience in the face of family tragedy.
Set in rural Ireland in the early 1960s, a sequel to The Woman of the House and Across the River, House of Memories concludes the story of two neighbouring farms and their feuding families.
