Colorado, 1875.
  Anne MacEilan once had everything she needed. She had loving parents, a house full of siblings, and a happy life in Galway, Ireland. She wasn't rich in money, but everything else was perfect.
  It's gone now. All of the family, save for four of the children and their father, is dead. Their father has left them for drink and women, and the rest of the family emigrated to America.
  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)
  Book 2: Ladybird- Mary (complete)

I am Irish and from Galway I am also fluent in English and Irish but I have Connemara Irish it varies all over the country what type of Irish but Ireland rules, 👌

"Wee" is definitely more of an Ulster (that's the north of Ireland) and Scottish term - I doubt it would have spread down to Galway.

Aw 😥 this is crushing. Just read Les Miserables recently, parents leaving kids really happened. So sad...
