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. Excerpt
"They gazed at each other for a long moment as the echo of his words hung in the air between them. Finally, he took a deep breath. 'Kathleen, I won't ask you to come with me. 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."

Professional Reviews

****1/2--The futility of the continuing pattern of violence and hatred is wrenchingly portrayed. A most memorable novel.--Jill Smith

Bellacera's first novel is a riveting psychological thriller set amid the "troubles" plaguing contemporary Northern Ireland. A heartrending portrait of love and loss.--Margaret Flanagan

Library Journal
A powerful and deeply moving story of terror, death, hope, and love. Remarkable for its intensity and vivid portrayal of life in Northern Ireland.--Susan Gene Clifford
