Why the author wrote this book:

Daddy’s mother was an Irish Callahan from County Clark. Then there’s my maternal grandmother who was also of Irish descent.

My first trip to Ireland in the 90s, I was immediately struck by the joy sparkling in the eyes of the people I met. I drove through the lush, green countryside and poked about in pubs and music shops. Everyone I encountered felt like family.

I also felt a deep sense of how the Troubles of Northern Ireland so dramatically affect Irish lives.

Then as I visited an Irish girl’s boarding school, I had one of those writer moments where a character sprang fully formed into my head, commanding me to tell her story--Annie Foster, the heroine of CLAIMING ANNIE’S HEART.
