Ann Moore brings to life the haunting beauty of nineteenth-century Ireland and its tumultuous, heartbreaking history in the first novel of her critically acclaimed trilogy. Gracelin's father, Patrick, named her for the light of the sea that shone in her eyes. But joy and laughter leave the O'Malley clan when Gracelin is six-and-a-half and tragedy befalls the family. Less than a decade later, Gracelin must put her romantic dreams aside and marry a local landowner, the son of an English lord, to save her loved ones from financial ruin. Although she is a dutiful wife to capricious Bram Donnelly, Gracelin takes dangerous risks. With political violence sweeping through Ireland and the potato blight destroying lives, she secretly sides with the Young Irelanders, among them her brilliant brother, Sean, and the rebel leader Morgan McDonagh. Set against the rise of the Irish rebellion, with a cast of unforgettable characters led by the indomitable eponymous heroine, Gracelin O'Malley weaves a spellbinding story of courage, hope, and passion.

This is one of those books that I will never forget. It is actually a trilogy, but the first of the series is truly an amazing story. Grace is a young Irish bride married to a cruel English man. She's caught between the world of her husband's and the plight of the Irish resistance. I could not put this novel down - I love that it was written by a local author!
