Riveting Historical Suspense
First, let me recommend that you read the first book in the Edge of Freedom series No Safe Harbor; in order to understand the continuing plot of hatred between the two warring factions of Irish immigrants (the Fenians and the Unionists) living in America.
The story now focuses on Cara Hamilton’s brother, Eoghan, and her friend Ana Kavanagh. Both Eoghan and Ana have secrets from their pasts that they want and need to keep hidden. Despite this need there is a strong attraction between them.
Eoghan recognizes his feelings for Ana. But his involvement with the Fenians, as well as his associations causes him to want to keep his distance. There is also the issue of one of the leaders who is seeking information about Eoghan’s brother-in-law, Rourke Turner; which causes him to get close to Ana as he seeks the needed information. What Eoghan doesn’t know is that he is being used by someone who intends to harm Ana.
There is so much more I could say, but I do not want to give anything away that will ruin the story for you; although I will add that I was so riveted to the story that I didn’t want to put it down. Now I am anxious to read the next book in the Edge of Freedom series to see how Elizabeth Ludwig concludes this series.
About the Book:
The nightmares of her past have found Ana Kavanagh an ocean away.
Ana Kavanagh's memories of Ireland are mostly of fire and pain. As a girl she survived a blaze that left her an orphan, left her scarred, and left her angry at God. Now in New York, Ana finds a kindred spirit in Eoghan Hamilton, who's struggling with his own anger. His twin sister, Cara, betrayed him by falling in love with his enemy.
Cast aside by everyone, Eoghan hopes to rejoin the Fenians, an organization pushing for change back in Ireland, by securing information against Rourke, the man his sister married. Ana, Cara's friend, may be his best source, and despite the attraction he feels, Eoghan determines to use the girl's sweet nature to his advantage.
Adding to the danger is a specter from Eoghan's own past, one whose thirst for vengeance knows no bounds. Eoghan must choose which road to follow--bitterness or forgiveness--and where to finally place his trust.
