'A Cottage in Shottery' is historical fiction based on fact. Most of the characters, (but not all) are real people and the events described actually happened, although what led up to them, and the eventual outcome, is imaginary. The story is woven around two women in the life of William Shakespeare, his wife and one of his daughters. There are many myths and legend about the Bard and I have chosen just a few, so the story is sometimes controversial'. The novella is divided in two parts with Anne and Judith telling their own stories.
New York Times bestselling author JoAnn Ross returns to Shelter Bay's sister city, Castlelough, Ireland, home to her beloved, award-winning Irish trilogy-A Woman's Heart, Fair Haven, and Legends Lake-with a story about a woman overcoming tragedy and a man whose heart she once broke. When burned-out war journalist Duncan McCaragh is assigned to cover a "sighting" of the Lady, Ireland's sea beastie version of Scotland's Nessie, he decides to use his forced time in Castlelough to come up with a plan to win back his estranged wife. Failure is not an option... What he has no way of knowing is that photojournalist Cassandra Carpenter is also on her way to Castlelough with the divorce papers Duncan's been refusing to sign. Can the magic of the Emerald Isle and the Lady reunite these two wounded hearts?
