It is 1875 and the Feeneys have left the squalor of the slums far behind them, yet all is not well. Patrick remains a simple man of simple tastes, out of sympathy with Thomasin’s ambition to expand her business empire still further across Yorkshire’s broad acres. Having lost their son, Richard, to a fiery death, the Feeneys’ future is invested in the grandchildren: Rosanne, who is set to follow a rebel lover down a star-crossed road; Nick, a cool young man who is privy to everyone’s secrets; and Erin’s daughter Belle, who has problems of her own. Erin’s Child continues the Feeney saga told in A Long Way from Heaven and For My Brothers Sins. Packed with humour, life and drama, it is an unputdownable account of one family’s struggle to survive.
