I just submitted my prequel! Legacy of Truth happens a generation before Legacy of Hunger.
In Legacy of Hunger, you meet Esme, whose sister Bridey had emigrated to America. Bridey’s granddaughter, Valentia, had returned to Ireland to find her family and a mystical brooch.
In Legacy of Truth, we hear Esme’s story.
In a small town in northwest Ireland around 1800, Esme must grow up quickly. Her parents are leaving for America, abandoning her and her groom-to-be, Seán, to fend for their own. As she struggles to find her place among strangers in a new, isolated town, she finds it difficult to keep hold of what is precious to her.
Her one friend, Aisling, helps her through depression and illness as Seán stays away longer and longer on trading missions. Her sister tries to steal a mystical brooch from her, a brooch with which her grandfather entrusted her, to use for her own selfish ends.
While she has some comfort in her small family, she must discover comfort in her own company to hold back the growing despair and battle against her sister’s treachery.
If my publisher likes the story and accepts it, it takes several months to go through the process. Several rounds of editing, proofreading, cover art, and final formatting are required. I’ll keep everyone updated!
