Today launches the tour for A Dance in Donegal!

I know first-hand this book has been a long time in the making! I worked with Jennifer Deibel during my time at Litfuse several years ago, and she was starting work on her first back then. I'm so happy for her seeing her writing dream come true with the release of A Dance in Donegal.

About the Book:

All her life, Boston-born Moira Doherty has relished her mother's descriptions of the Emerald Isle. When her mother dies unexpectedly in the summer of 1920, Moira is compelled to fulfill her dying wish--that she become the teacher in Ballymann, the beloved village in Donegal, Ireland, she's heard so much about.

After an arduous voyage, Moira begins a challenging new job in an unfamiliar and ancient country. Though a few locals offer a warm welcome, others are distanced by superstition and suspicion. Rumors about Moira's mother are unspoken in her presence but threaten to derail everything she's journeyed to Ballymann to do. Moira must rely on the kindness of a handful of friends--and the strength of Sean, an unsettlingly handsome thatcher who keeps popping up unannounced--as she seeks to navigate a life she'd never dreamed of . . . but perhaps was meant to live.

What Others are Saying:

"Jennifer Deibel's debut is rich in atmosphere, family mystery, and sweet romance. A gem!"
~ Julie Klassen, author of The Bridge to Belle Island

"With an authenticity born of having lived in Ireland herself, the author deftly paints a lush landscape, colorful customs, and memorable characters with personal journeys of their own. This impressive debut marks Jennifer Deibel as an author to watch."
~ Jocelyn Green, Christy Award-winning author of Veiled in Smoke

"Fans of Catherine Marshall's Christy will want to clear room on their favorites shelf because this one's earned a place alongside!"
Kristy Cambron, bestselling author of The Paris Dressmaker and The Butterfly and the Violin
