The Read Irish Women Giveaway!

For my final giveaway for Reading Ireland Month, I’m focusing on the work of two very different female writers and will be offering copies of The House by Leland Bardwell and The Closet of Savage Mementos by Nuala Ni Chonchuir, both of whose work I have reviewed this week.

The Closet of Savage Mementoes and The House could be winging their way to you next week!

The Closet of Savage Mementos by Nuala Ni Chonchuir

Lillis takes a summer job working at a lodge in a small lochside village in the Scottish Highlands. Leaving home is a way to escape her sorrow and despair following the death of her boyfriend and a testy relationship with her mother, Verity.

In Scotland she encounters love and excitement but when a series of unexpected events turn her new found life on its head, she is forced to make a life-changing decision, one that will stay with her for her whole life.

The House by Leland Bardwell

Cedric Stewart returns from post-World War II London to visit his dying father in the family home near Killiney. Ireland. Estranged from his parents with their ‘stiff Protestant notions’, he finds renewed solace in Theresa, the Catholic housekeeper whom he has loved since his youth. Through flashbacks to his childhood and previous trips to this house with which he has a love-hate relationship, Cedric tries to recover a sense of his own place in the world.

If you’d like to win these two great books, as always simply comment below or retweet my post and you will automatically be entered. The draw will close on Tuesday 31 March at 6pm and the winner will be chosen by RandomPicker. The rules are the same as my previous giveaways!

Best of luck!
