The Hamiltons of Ballydown Summary

The Hamiltons of Ballydown by Ann Doughty

From the author of The Woman from Kerry, On a Clear Day and Beyond the Green Hills. In the closing years of the nineteenth century the Hamilton family have much to be thankful for. As well as the new-found security of living in their own home at Ballydown, John is a respected employee and friend of mill owner Hugh Sinton, and Rose has a new, much-valued friend in Elizabeth Sinton, Hugh's sister. The women's close bond is a source of comfort and strength to both of them, and Rose has every reason to be happy with her lot, after years of hardship and poverty. As Rose and John watch their children, James, Sam, Hannah and their last-born, strong-willed Sarah, make their own choices and mistakes they must draw on inner reserves of courage and steadfastness to face both pain and joy as all their futures unfold.
