Book Review-The Irish Cottage-Finding Elizabth-Juliet Gauvin

Friday, June 18, 2021

This was a simply lovely book which I enjoyed from page one right until the end when there was an ending that left you hanging--wanting more!!

Elizabeth was a powerful attorney who always won her cases. She was trying to get back at her Mom who left her and her father who deserted them. She was brought up by her great aunt who kept some secrets from Elizabeth. As she was dying she wrote Elizabeth 7 letters to try and tell her the truth and to get her to go back to the girl she once was.

She rents a cottage and figures she will stay alone mostly and attempt to acclimate to being totally alone now that her great aunt has died. However that was not to be as you will read! I could almost feel the way the people decided she needed friends and help--especially her landlord. You could not meet a bunch of better people if you tried!

You may laugh at some, grimace at other parts and the tears may fall as well. It is definitely the story of a woman re-discovering who she was truly meant to be.

About the Book: (from Amazon)

A story about losing your way and finding your life. Book 1 of 3.

Elizabeth Lara built a perfect life as San Francisco’s top divorce attorney, but when she loses her great-aunt Mags, the woman who raised her, she boards a plane and leaves it all behind.

The Irish shores welcome her as she learns a shocking truth, kept secret for thirty-five years. Devastated and now alone in the world, Beth tries to find peace in a beautiful cottage by Lough Rhiannon, but peace isn’t what fate had in mind. Almost as soon as she arrives, Beth’s solitary retreat into the magic wilds of Ireland is interrupted by Connor Bannon. A man with light brown hair, ice blue eyes and a secret of his own. He’s gorgeous, grieving, and completely unexpected.

With the help of Mags’ letters, the colorful townspeople of Dingle, and Connor, Elizabeth might just find a way back to the girl she lost long ago and become the woman she always wanted to be.

A Note From Jules: Be forewarned you might not want to start this book late at night—several readers have reported “gobbling it up” and going on to the next book immediately. This book is literary women’s fiction, it is not a traditional romance, per se.

About the Author: (from Amazon)

Jules is originally from California. She is a true, hopeless, all-in romantic. Her first kiss was with a Frenchman in Paris, her first love was an Eagle Scout, her first crash and burn was with someone from Harvard (Jules studied history at Yale--she should have known better).

The Irish Cottage: Finding Elizabeth was inspired by Jules' love for all things Irish. A love sparked in her teens by Riverdance; fanned into a flame when she befriended a group of Irish kids in France; and blazed into a wildfire by a visit to the Emerald Isle.

Earlier this year, an AncestryDNA test confirmed what Jules has suspected for a while: she's part Irish (one of her grandparents continues to be unknown, but as luck would have it, the test divined that he must have been an Irish-Scot-Swede).

This sounds like a book that I will enjoy reading. Having it set in Ireland sounds intriguing.
