Until Nora trips and tumbles into the River Liffey, her cry for help cut off as the dark water closes over her head… Many drunken nights have passed and still, Niall O’Byrne cannot free himself from memories of the woman who betrayed him and broke his heart.

Book Length: Novel - 150-320 PagesHistorical fiction is a literary genre in which the narrative takes place in the past. Historical books capture the particulars of the time as correctly as possible to get authenticities, such as societal norms, ways, habits, and traditions. Historical fiction is put in a real location during a culturally recognizable moment. The facts and the actions from the narrative can be a mixture of real occasions and ones in the writer's creativity as they fill in the gaps. Characters may be pure fiction or based on actual people. But what about them and their look and attitudes, how they talk, and issues that they face, everything which should match the era.
