Carole Bellacera, Author
An American woman moves to Northern Ireland with her Irish husband and becomes involved in the Troubles.
"A stirring first novel of terror, death, love, and hope, told with power and
conviction and set in the troubled part of Northern Ireland where peace at long
last seems almost possible." -- Andrew M. Greeley, bestselling author of IRISH
GOLD, SUMMER AT THE LAKE, CONTRACT WITH AN ANGEL, etc...
"BORDER CROSSINGS is a searing look at a family caught in the maelstrom of a tragic
political conflict. Carole Bellacera has captured, with amazing believability, the passions and
the hatreds that fuel the Irish Troubles." -- Tess Gerritsen, New York Times Best-Selling
Author of HARVEST, BLOODSTREAM, LIFE SUPPORT.
"For a first novel, BORDER CROSSINGS, is a fine achievement indeed. The characters are
sharply drawn; one both understands and cares about their relationships. The central theme,
that of a woman's love for a man caught up in violence, is not exclusively Irish. It will strike
a painful chord with readers everywhere." --Morgan Llywelyn, author of 1916.

But God help me, I want you by my side. I need you and Sean like I need air to breathe. But I won't stop you if you want to take the lad and go back to America.'
Kathy gazed back at him, knowing she couldn't do that. In his defeat, Pearse had won a victory."
