Frank Delaney was the January author for the Irish book group on Ravelry. (yes, Nascar group, NerdWars group, coffee group, hockey group, Irish book group- amazing there is time/space for knitting etc on there!) So when I went to the library - they had his first US published book. The downside - it is 672 pages. the upside I am already on page 70! I only put it down because it was time to make dinner. I love his story of the NewGrange tomb.
