Jean Grainger is an author of historical Irish fiction. Her work has drawn comparisons to the great Maeve Binchy. She is proud of her home, a 200-plus year old stone cottage in rural County Cork, Ireland.

Before writing, Grainger worked as a tour guide in Ireland so she knows her way around the countryside and all of the best spots. She would later work as an English and History teacher in a boy’s secondary school. She loved those jobs, but the lure of writing was too strong and she eventually turned to writing fiction where she could spend her days in her pyjamas and writing stories.

Lord and Lady Kanefick live in a grand house with their adult children, but no longer have the money to keep such a large house and the property is starting to dwindle. The Murphy family live on the estate and do their best to keep things up, but there is only so much they can do. The families maintain their social structure, but the war has a way of messing things up and both families find themselves drawn into the conflict.
