ISBN: 9781842232712

Love, Loss, and the Courage to Bloom: A Family's Journey Through Unexpected Waters.

Amidst the tranquil waters of Ballygrace's canal, Kate Flowers, with her raven-black hair, dutifully tends to her widowed mother, Mary, and her unpredictable brother, Brendan, who toils away on the canal barges. The rhythm of their lives is disrupted when Kate encounters the charismatic boatman, Michael O’Brien. In a moment of passion, she forsakes her aspirations of nursing, opting instead for the conventional path of marriage and motherhood.

Yet, a storm of change is brewing. Mary's visit to her sister in Stockport rekindles forgotten desires, leading her on a journey of rediscovery and newfound interests. As the canal barges face an impending threat, Brendan grapples with the choice between emigration and his clandestine love for a neighbor's daughter, whose family harbors secrets of their own.

Suddenly, tragedy strikes, shattering the family's world and propelling them into uncharted territory. Forced to rebuild their lives in unfamiliar surroundings, the Flowers family discovers reserves of strength and resilience within themselves, pushing them to blossom once more in the face of adversity.
