Chamomile Winter is the fast moving sequel to Terracotta Summer. The herb known as Chamomile, grown in terracotta pots by Rosie O'Shea, is symbolic of that which is healing. Its delicate appearance hides a steadfast ability to grow despite the odds, and when taken as a tisane, warms, restores, and soothes - a fitting contrast to the chilling image of winter.
In like manner, the O'Shea family is in need of reconciliation. Can they overcome the pressure of alarming circumstances? Find out how trials faced by Patrick, who remained in Manchester in the first volume, continue as he faces more anguish from involvement with the Irish Republican Army. Ken, Patrick's brother, has a new companion on the building site of Southport Chapel, who proves to be even more of a challenge than his Cockney friend in Scotland had been. And when Ruth O'Shea arrives in Southport from America it stirs up a whole new set of complications for Ken. [Author website]
