Donal agus Jimmy

Donal73 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?

  1. I’ve just finished my third re-read of this gem. It certainly deserves the “Five Star Read” from Speak Its Name. Based on the strength of this beautiful story, you were added to my ‘Buy all this author’s books’ list.

    Sigh … it surely would be nice to find out if Donal and Jimmy made it to America.

    • Thank you so much for the kind words–I hope all my work pleases you so well. **swoon**

      As far as Donal and Jimmy’s eventual destination, I haven’t written it yet, but it’s an HEA, and I know where one of Jimmy’s boilers is still in operation. He built those puppies to last, I tell you.
