“Brandeen, In the Shadow of Captain Moonlight,” a new book by Helen Walsh Folsom, is now available.
Folsom is from Kansas City, Kan., and has written other books, including “St. Patrick’s Secrets,” “Fianna,” and “Ah, Those Irish Colleens.” Drawing on her Scots Irish heritage, she decided that in her retirement she would write books with Irish settings.
This new book is the story of Brandeen, who lived with her tender-hearted mother, Peig, in the town of Cullymor, Ireland. Her life was not at all pleasant. She was considered illegitimate and treated horribly by the town folk. When she learns of her father’s return, she burns with anger and resentment.
Brandeen resents this estranged father who forces her away from her secure little cottage home into an uncomfortable house and dangerous circumstances that repeatedly threaten her life.
Although she grows to enjoy her training to become a shipping company magnate, she still resents her father until slowly and surely she realizes the man she hates is the man she would risk anything to defend, even to revealing the identity of Captain Moonlight.
The book is available for purchase by Kindle on www.amazon.com.
