The very first novel by the phenomenal #1 New York Times bestselling author, now in a beautiful new hardcover edition.

There's nothing left for Adelia Cunnane in Ireland. The aunt she cared for has passed, and the family farm has been sold for taxes. But her uncle Paddy has written her: Come to America ...

Dee has always had a magical touch with animals, and she finds employment with her uncle on the Maryland horse farm owned by Travis Grant. It's a joy to ride Travis's chestnut Thoroughbred--and to spend her first paycheck on luxuries she never had in the old country. But Dee is disconcerted by the way her boss treats her--and the way she responds. America may be the land of opportunity, a place where even those from the humblest background can pursue what they want--and, perhaps, evenfind themselves one day attending the Kentucky Derby. But some divides may be too wide to cross, and Dee fears that demanding more could cost her all that she's already gained.

A classic romance by the author who went on to take the world by storm, topping the lists again and again in multiple genres, Irish Thoroughbred will be cherished by fans who have fallen in love with Nora Roberts.

great story and enjoyed it, good easy summer read and kept my interest. May have been written in 1981 but a timeless story.:)

This may be a new printing -- says it is 2018 -- but it is an old book. Good one, but old story.
