Beneath the Darkening Clouds

The Irish Fortune Series, Book #2

by Juliane Weber

In a land on the brink of ruin, their past can’t be outrun.

Quin and Alannah have overcome obstacles and endured heartache, but their biggest challenge is yet to come. It's 1845 and Ireland is plagued with unrest when the unthinkable happens – the potato harvest on which most Irish peasants depend fails. With their livelihoods destroyed, thousands are left desperate for food, making unease and fear ripple across the land; and with the response of the British government inadequate, hunger and disease soon follow. Now it’s up to Quin and Alannah to save the people living on their estate.

But all the while, danger lurks from other quarters, as Quin delves into mysteries from his past, incurring the wrath of powerful enemies.
Amid the hardships of the Irish Famine, Beneath the Darkening Clouds sweeps the reader on a heart-wrenching journey of love and loyalty in a myth-shrouded land.



"The plot is gripping. […] The description and historical detail will transport the reader to Ireland during a devastating time in history."
~ Historical Novel Society, Editor's Choice

"Author Juliane Weber has crafted a sweeping saga with plenty of romantic tension, historical drama, and deeply emotive moments. One of the things I enjoyed most about the work was how it puts Ireland at the forefront of the tale, from all the small details about the culture and way of life to the celebration of mythology, landscape, and spirit that keeps the novel bright even during the greatest hardships that the central couple faces."
