Loving Christy

Christy Doyle, a lonely young woman, is trapped by a routine job and the expectations of her traditional Irish-American community. After her beloved mother, Eileen, passes away, she feels suffocated by the demands of her needy father. In her loneliness, Christy befriends Dennis O’Malley, the bartender at a neighborhood pub. Like Christy, he is disillusioned with life and has put his dreams on hold. Christy meets Dave, a handsome and mysterious man. She is shattered when she discovers that he is engaged to be married. Eventually, Christy and Dennis become involved in a complicated relationship.

Can Christy welcome love into her life, but on her own terms?

The book is available from Amazon in paperback or Kindle format.


I call my novel a relationship story. Love stories are really about relationships.
