Sinopsis:

A New York Times notable book and bestseller, this debut novel from Irish Times columnist Nuala O'Faolain takes on life and love with Dickensian flair and the striking intimacy that characterized her bestselling and acclaimed memoir, Are You Somebody?
Set in Ireland and spanning a century and a half, My Dream of You unfolds the compelling stories of two women and their quests for passion, connection, and fulfillment. A globetrotting Irish travel writer, Kathleen de Burca is used to living--and loving--on the run. On the brink of fifty, she decides to leave her job and rethink her life. Intrigued by a divorce case dating back to the days of the Potato Famine, she tries hand at writing about it. The case, called "The Talbot Affair," detailed the clandestine liaison between the wife of a British landlord and an Irish servant in Ireland in the 1850s. After a bitter thirty-year absence, Kathleen returns to Ireland, the land of her troubled childhood and turbulent heritage, in search of answers to her questions about desire and lasting love.

Sinopsis:

Kathleen is a travel writer based in London and the office is the nearest thing she has to a family. Then, on the brink of middle age, the props of her life fall away and she is faced with the frightening prospect of change. In her crisis she turns to a new form of writing, and decides to investigate a story about a relationship so passionate that it burned its way across the barriers of class and culture; a true story she had long known in fragments. The affair was played out in 1850s Ireland, against the backdrop of a country devastated by the potato famine and this starts a journey which leads her into the historical past, and into a reconsideration of the family she fled years ago...
