Patrick are setting out from Ireland with each other as well
as a snippet of a rose bush and the family Celtic Brooch.
They start to wonder if they will survive the sea voyage, but
as the story progresses you realize they do.
inherited the Celtic Brooch from her ancestors. Now more than
200 years after Deidre and Patrickís voyage it is being used
as part of the secret Underground Railroad signal system. She
is one of the many women left behind in the Pennsylvania
countryside near Gettysburg when their men went off to fight
in the Civil War. She and her sister-in-law continue to run
the family store and hope that their men will be home again
soon. As Kay sees her sister-in-law continue to thrive in her
pregnancy she again wanders how she can get Nolan to marry
her, or at least lay with her on his infrequent visits home.
She finally is given the opportunity to have him marry her and
jumps at it.
Gettysburg looms Kay gives the Brooch to her husband Nolan to
sell, or trade for whatever the Union army needs to help
further its cause. Will they ever see the Brooch again and
will it continue to provide the luck it has in the past?
Freedomís Touch is a wonderful heartfelt story about
love, struggle, freedom and loss. I thoroughly enjoyed the
latest chapter of the Celtic Brooch, from itís entry into the
United States to its furthering the cause of freedom in the
Civil War. The author did a fine job of portraying the need
for secrecy while still acting on oneís beliefs. Having been
to the general area portrayed in the story she also did a
wonderful job giving the lay of the land as well as the
actions around the war. Freedomís Touch is a
wonderful story for those who like reading an inspirational
love story as well as the struggles around the Underground
Railroad during the Civil War.
