  1. Gee, I must have ancestors from Ireland.
    One of my grandmothers was a Fitzgerald…maybe I am related to the Kennedys!
    Congrats to the winner of the book!

    • Kay – More than likely you have a wee drop of Irish blood if your grandmother was a Fitzgerald. When someone shared the same last name my grandmother would always say they were thirty-first cousins, so you’re probably a thirty-first cousin of the Kennedys.
      Thanks for stopping by,

    Thank you for reviewing this book. I will be off to Amazon to purchase!

  3. Congrats to Kathleen! And blessings to you, Mairead!

    • Blessings to you too, Cheryl. My thoughts have been with everyone who lives in the midwest over the past few days, as you all take shelter from these severe springtime storms. I hope you and yours are all safe and sound.
      Best wishes,
