The darkest sin casts the longest shadow... Ruby Flynn, set in Ireland and Liverpool, is the enthralling story of a family haunted by ancient wrongs.

Synopsis

Ruby Flynn by Nadine Dorries

The FitzDeanes are wealthy. They have Ballyford Castle in Ireland and a growing shipping business in Liverpool. But Lady FitzDeane is unable to provide an heir. All of her five boys have died in infancy. There are whispers that the family is cursed - punished for a terrible mistake long buried in the past. When young Ruby Flynn, an orphan reared and educated by nuns, arrives at Ballyford to work as a nursery maid, she cannot shake the feeling that she has been there before. But when? Soon rumours and strong emotions are swirling around the beautiful girl with red hair, green eyes - and a mysterious past. Who is she really? And what will her arrival mean for this powerful family, riven by tragedy?

Reviews

'Truly engaging to read ... a stunning family saga from the bestselling author of The Four Streets Trilogy ... This is the kind of story that you get completely wrapped up in' Bookshelf Butterfly.


About the Author

Nadine Dorries

Nadine Dorries was born and raised on a council estate in Liverpool in the 1950s and 60s, the dawn of the Mersey beat. Her family were part of a close-knit Irish Catholic community, most of whom came to work on the docks of Merseyside from rural Ireland. Nadine trained as a nurse, working in hospitals in Warrington and Liverpool. After qualifying she moved to Zambia for a year and ran a school for local children. On her return to the UK, she founded, ran and sold her own business, Company Kids Ltd, which provided childcare services for working parents.

Determined to give something back, Nadine entered politics. In the 2005 general elections she was elected as the MP for Mid-Bedfordshire, a position she continues to hold nine years later. One of the most well-known politicians working in Britain, she is renowned for her determination to push her chosen causes to the top of the political agenda. She created a political storm when she described Prime Minister David Cameron and Chancellor George Osborne as ‘two arrogant posh boys’. In 2012 she was a star of ITV’s ‘I’m a Celebrity, Get Me Out of Here’.

A successful businesswoman and passionate Member of Parliament, in 2013 Nadine achieved another life long ambition and wrote her debut novel. The Four Streets is the first in series, and Nadine is currently working on the second book, to be published in December 2014.
