On My Kindle - Londonderry Dreaming by Christine Lindsay

Keith Wilson's grandma left instructions that he was to clean out her house after her death. A music therapist, he leaves for Northern Ireland to attend the funeral and fulfill her wishes.

Naomi Boyd, renowned artist, travels to the Emerald Isle at the request of Keith's grandmother. Ruth Wilson has a gift for her and answers that might solve a long-standing mystery.

When she arrives, Ruth has already passed on. Naomi never expected to come face-to-face with the love she abandoned five years before. As they sift through Ruth's belongings, they discover more than answers to old secrets. Will they give each other a second chance or walk away.

I purchased this book way back in 2014 but forgot about it. The author writes wonderful stories set in exotic locales like India and Ireland. I've enjoyed her work for years. Londonderry Dreaming was no exception. She wove a compelling story with multi-layered emotions.

5 Stars for this novella.

Susan: I haven't read very many books set in another country. The one I remember was a historical novel. This sounds intriguing. Thanks for sharing it with us.
