Nancy Blanton is a historical fiction author who has just the right touch for crafting authentic, character-centric dialogue that takes you back to 17th century Ireland. Together with impeccable historical details and a rousing good adventure, her Prince of Glencurragh is a novel that I would heartily recommend.
Winner of Florida's Royal Palm Literary Award, this is the story of a 17th-century peasant girl who curses Oliver Cromwell during his march across Ireland, and then must run for her life. Swept away to the West Indies, can she survive those lawless lands, destroy her enemy and reclaim her own heritage?

When Faolan Burke abducts an Irish heiress to improve his station in life, he finds true love and the pathway to his dream, the Castle Glencurragh, but trouble awaits.
