Regular price $15.99

A doctor sickened by the First World War. His children determined to fight in World War 2. How far can you stretch the ties that bind a family?
In the turbulent and uncertain times of Ireland in 1919, the birth of two children revitalise a small town.
Dr. Richard Buckley returns home to his wife and beloved hometown of Dunderrig, weary and heart-sick over the horror and pointlessness of The Great War.
Soon, trouble is coming from all sides-Richard's unhappy wife leaves Dunderrig, and a Nazi occupied Europe marches steadily closer to home.
In the blink of an eye, the peace he'd craved and enjoyed since his days on the battlefield are gone.
Meantime, James and Juliet come of age in a world on the brink of chaos, where the remnants of rebellion at home have snowballed into the horrors of yet another world war.
Their father doesn't see the twins choosing different paths-dangerous paths-that will test everything, including their love for their country, their family, and each other.
Historically rich and moving, the tale of two children from the Irish countryside caught in the throes of wartime Europe is a testament to the strength of the human spirit and its willingness to endure.
Experience this critical time in history like never before in So Much Owed.
One reviewer said 'Move over Maeve Binchy, this book is unputdownable.'
Another wrote 'I loved this book, meticulously researched, yet accessibly written, you'll be enthralled for the first page to the last.'
Winner of Best Historical Fiction 2016 -Author's Circle Award.
