Publisher's summary

A heart-warming story about family secrets and one woman’s escape to dreamy Sandy Cove on the stunning west coast of Ireland. 

The picturesque beach of Wild Rose Bay is the last place Lydia Butler thought she’d be. But having just lost everything, the run-down cottage she inherited from her Great Aunt Nellie is the only place she can take her daughter, Sunny. Hidden away in a tiny Irish village, she can protect Sunny from the gossip in Dublin, and the real reason they have nowhere else to live.... 

The cottage is part of the old coastguard station and other eccentric residents are quick to introduce themselves when Lydia arrives. Lydia instantly feels less alone, fascinated by the stories they have about Nellie, and she’s charmed by American artist Jason O’Callaghan, the mysterious man who lives next door. 

But the longer Lydia relaxes under the moonlit sky, the more the secret she’s keeping from Sunny threatens to come out. And as she finds herself running into Jason’s arms, she knows she must be honest and face up to the past she has tried to forget. Has she finally found people who will truly accept her, or will the truth force her to leave the cottage for good? 

Will transport you to Ireland to relax on the shore and stare at the perfect emerald waters. The Lost Girls of Ireland is perfect for listeners of Debbie Macomber, Sheila O’Flanagan and Mary Alice Monroe.

Great Read

Loved the characters and the story. Made me wish I lived in a small town where people cared about each other.

the lost girls of Ireland

this story was easy to listen to. the premise was believable and not complicated. I listen to audible books as a way to fall asleep and like books without too many characters so I can follow a story. the performer was also easy to understand.

Lose yourself and your heart in Lost Girls of Ireland

I thoroughly enjoyed the story and enjoyed seeing the characters grow closer together and find peace. Having been to Ireland several times, reading the descriptions reminded me of the enjoyment shared with friends and family when visiting. The descriptions of the countryside, islands, and sea are so vivid. Even if I had never been there, Ireland would be on my wish list to see and feel first hand the peace and beauty the characters feel and I think anyone visiting for the first time could experience as well with an open mind. I look forward to a return some day and to enjoying other books about Ireland both fiction and non fiction. Jan

If you’re a romantic, enjoy this getaway to Ireland’s west coast. The story was perhaps predictable, however I thoroughly enjoyed the immersion into a charming Irish village, with a romance thrown in. A wonderful escape from today’s tumultuous world.

I like the simple store but it most slowly sometimes too predictable conclusions

The readers Boston accent need a ton of work. That was extremely distracting to me Anna made me laugh outlets sometimes when I want sure who was speaking.

Mundane

Loved the narrator and her beautiful Irish lilt. But she didn't have much of a story to work with. Now I know why this book was a 2 for 1 sale. Nothing much happened. Just every day mundane conversations and he said, then she said, then they did this and that. I was waiting to hear the story to develop maybe learn things about the aunt but nothing happened. I usually listen to my books twice but won't be doing that. It also was very predictable.

Good storyline

The story was pretty good. A dialect coach for the Boston accent would have helped. It was inconsistent and bothersome. The accent was used accidentally during the narration a couple of times which made it confusing.
