Border Crossings

What happens when an American woman marries a perfectly ordinary Irish professor, hoping to settle down to a tranquil life in Dublin? Answer: A murder. A dilemma. And an abrupt move to Enniskillen, Northern Ireland, where she is thrust into the center of a violent political conflict that threatens to destroy her marriage--and perhaps her life. Border Crossings is the story of an American woman, Kathy O'Faolain, happily married to Pearse, an Irish professor at Trinity College. Life in Dublin is good for the O'Faolain family until Pearse receives word that Protestant extremists have murdered his brother, a Sinn Fein councilor in Enniskillen, Northern Ireland. Kathy's ordered life falls apart when relatives convince Pearse to return to his family home in Enniskillen and take over his brother's work in the Republican cause. Kathy, with her young son, Sean, must adapt to life in a violent society, and by doing so, finds her personality changing in ways that are both positive and negative.
