Never Broken

Never Broken is the first book in the Irish-Scottish historical series Everlasting Faith.  Never Broken was originally published in 2006, but due to the publisher canceling their fiction line, the rest of the series wasn’t published. In 2008 I switched my focus to Amish fiction (which I enjoy writing) but I was thrilled when I had the opportunity to re-publish Never Broken with MountainBrook Ink. and finish the series.

Never Broken is a family saga set in 1840s Ireland and Scotland during the Irish famine and the Scottish clearances. While the story is pure fiction, the inspiration for the book and series came from my own ancestry. My great-great grandfather immigrated to Glasgow, Scotland, from County Cork, Ireland. In the early 20th century my grandfather immigrated to the United States. When I learned about my family history, I wanted to write a story about characters having faith in the direst of circumstances. The tragedies that led to the Irish Diaspora and the Scottish clearances shaped the rest of the 19th century and had a lasting impact on the Industrial Age. Throughout these severe trials men and women kept their faith, relying on God even when He seemed to have abandoned them.

I hope you enjoy Never Broken and the two new books in the series, Never Forsaken and Never Abandoned. Happy reading!
