In the ongoing reorganization of my back-list, a lot of books are getting new faces, new ISBNs, and in one case, a new name. This story was originally part of a particular line that was themed with colors, which unfortunately made for a clunky title. That’s been tidied up, and everyone who’s looked at covers with me for the last few days has been given a sneak preview.
Donal agus Jimmy
The best jobs in 1911 Belfast are in the shipyards, but Donal Gallagher’s pay packet at Harland and Wolff doesn’t stretch far enough. He needs someone to share his rented room; fellow ship-builder Jimmy Healy’s bright smile and need for lodgings inspire Donal to offer. But how will he sleep, lying scant feet away from Jimmy? It seems Jimmy’s a restless sleeper, too, lying so near to Donal…
In a political climate turned volatile, Jimmy fears he’ll have to choose sides. He’d do anything to keep his Donal safe, even emigrating. Will shoveling coal on the ship nicknamed The Pride of Belfast make a new beginning for them, or the end?
