Colorado, 1875.
  When the MacEilans left Ireland, they hoped for a new start, away from the pain that has followed them their whole lives. But when four of the children are left alone in the frontiers of Colorado, a new start seems impossible- especially for Anne MacEilan, who still lives in her family's dark past.
  America isn't at all how they thought it would be. There's thieves and disease all around them- just what they hoped 
wouldn't be there. 
  Life has never treated the MacEilan family well... but will they be able to beat the odds, and make a life for themselves on the harsh Colorado soil?
  
  This is the first book in the Irish Thistles series, which will tell the stories of the MacEilan sisters. All of the written books can be found on my page.
  Book 1: My Wild Irish Rose- Anne (complete)

Emma's my favorite character hands down....I mean this is only the first chapter, but anyone with the wonderful name"Emma" (such as myself) must be a great character! 😁😊😎

Fantastic set-up. I especially love how you explained Emma being an island to herself.

Lovely writing and interesting story thus far!  It captivated me from the beginning and  also the cliffhanger, of course.
