The Irish Milliner
by Cynthia G Neale
The Civil War is brewing and Norah McCabe is now a widow and a milliner with a young
daughter. Struggling to survive in tumultuous times, Norah meets Abraham Lincoln,
befriends the extraordinary African-American woman, Elizabeth Jennings, and assists in the Underground Railroad. She falls headlong in love with Edward M. Knox, but he is lace curtain Irish and she is shanty Irish. Can their love survive the war and class differences? A story of survival, intrigue, romance, and exploring the conflict of Irish immigrants thrust into a war that threatened to destroy a nation.
