My Dark Rosaleen


“Brilliantly original” – Lynda La Plante

Drawing from Fidelis’s own family history, My Dark Rosaleen is a dark, dramatic saga set in Ireland and Liverpool that tells the stories of Hugo a small boy caught up in the Spanish Armada, wrecked on Western Ireland; Catherine a young rebellious Irish heiress living in County Down at the time of the Easter Rising, and her subsequent life in Liverpool; and Rosaleen, Catherine’s granddaughter, a seemingly respectable housewife, who, as a condemned woman, represents the sum total of centuries of turbulent Irish history.
