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. And for Anne MacEilan, life has many, many lessons to teach.
  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)

Oh this is beautiful and such great character development and scene setting already! Well done! ❤️
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.
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, 👌

I feel my heart pumping harder than normal. The tears and nose are running, thank goodness for PUFFS. You certainly have a way of writing that allows me to visualize myself being right in the middle of this conversation. You are a terrific writer. You had me hooked from the first page.

"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.
