Tracey Lange

Manuscript in English Original publisher: Celadon BooksCommercial Fiction

A new novel from the author of the instant New York Times bestseller We Are the Brennans

When Tara Connelly is released from prison after serving eighteen months on a drug charge, she knows rebuilding her life from scratch at thirty years old won’t be easy. With no money and no prospects, she returns home to live with her siblings, who are dealing with their own issues. Her brother struggles with the ongoing effects of a traumatic brain injury, her sister is a control freak, and her young nephew needs some attention. Things become even more complicated when the cop who put her in prison keeps showing up unannounced, and she can’t figure out what he wants from her.

While Tara works to build a new career and help her brother and sister overcome their challenges, she finds a chance at love in a most unlikely place. But when family secrets threaten her future, the Connellys have to make a choice: save each other, or lose each other for good.

Irish fairytales and myths weave through The Connellys of County Down as Tracey Lange explores loyalty and love among siblings and the unbreakable bonds of family.
