Did you know that US President Joe Biden is the descendant of Irish emigrants, who fled Ireland to escape the effects of the Great Famine? 

Nowadays, Ireland intrigues with its tales of mythical heroes and fairy-tale creatures, its ancient building sites, and beautiful countryside. But beneath the well-loved culture and folklore of the land lies a tragic history, most notably the devastating famine of the 19th century. With a vast portion of the Irish populace dependant on potatoes for their survival in 1845, the failure of four out of five consecutive harvests was catastrophic for those who had little else to fall back on. 

It is this poignant time in Irish history that is the backdrop of Beneath the Darkening Clouds, an action-packed romantic historical fiction novel set in myth-shrouded 19th century Ireland. The second book in the Irish Fortune Series picks up where the first book (Under the Emerald Sky) left off, continuing the story of Irishwoman Alannah O’Neill and Englishman Quinton Williams as they try to make a life for themselves in a land plagued with injustices and hardships, all while being pursued by powerful enemies. 

“Juliane Weber's book is a clever mix of love story, suspense, and Gaelic lore, in which Irish history plays an important role.”
~ The Historical Fiction Company
