This week, Jennifer Deibel stops by to chat with us about her newest release. There is a fabulous story behind the story you don't want to miss out on, and Jennifer shares with us a little bit about the Gaelic language.
The Lady of Galway Manor by Jennifer Deibel
In 1920, Annabeth De Lacy's father is appointed landlord of Galway Parish in Ireland. Bored without all the trappings of the British Court, Annabeth convinces her father to arrange an apprenticeship for her with the Jennings family--descendants of the creator of the famed Claddagh Ring.
Stephen Jennings longs to do anything other than run his family's jewelry shop. Having had his heart broken, he no longer believes in love and is weary of peddling the "lies" the Claddagh Ring promises.
Meanwhile, as the war for Irish independence gains strength, many locals resent the De Lacys and decide to take things into their own hands to display their displeasure. As events take a dangerous turn for Annabeth and her family, she and Stephen begin to see that perhaps the "other side" isn't quite as barbaric and uncultured as they'd been led to believe--and that the bonds of friendship, love, and loyalty are only made stronger when put through the refiner's fire.
Travel to the Emerald Isle for another poignant and romantic story from the enchanted pen of Jennifer Deibel.

Jennifer Deibel is a wife and mom just walking this road of life like everyone else. She's your typical American mom, working, raising kids, and loving her hubby…she's just been blessed to do some of it in Vienna, Austria, and the west of Ireland. However, after a decade of life overseas, they have settled back in America–in sunny Arizona!
She currently teaches middle school English, and when she's not working on school things, she's spending time with her incredible family–her husband Seth and their 3 awesome kids–and writing.
Her debut novel, A Dance in Donegal, released from Revell in 2021. You can read more about that here. And you can also get a copy of it here.
