A Dance in Donegal - Book Review

   A Dance in Donegal by Jennifer Drivel is a novel set in the 1920's, about a girl named Moira, who promised her late mother, that she would take a teaching job in a small village in Donegal, Ireland, where her mother once lived. Upon Moira arriving to the village, she didn't get a welcome acceptance, leaving her to wonder what was the cause of this. She became the teacher as agreed to, with her heart set on helping the children of the small town. After just a short time, she grew close with a small amount of dwellers, while others treated her unfairly, whispering nonsense behind her back. Moira wondered why God lead her to this place, when she felt so unwanted there. A handful of things happened to her and her surroundings, but she remained strong and in the end, she could see just why she was meant to be where she was taken. 

   When I first started reading this book, I was afraid I wasn't going to like it, because it started out slow and confusing. But I am so glad I pressed on and read the entire story. It was so good! Each character was so enjoyable to follow along with, and gave me a sense of being right there in the Ballymann Village, with Moira. I loved reading pieces with the Irish dialect and learning how they celebrate in different ways. This was such a comforting story to read, filled with mystery, compassion, and romance. I recommend this book for a nice winter afternoon so you can cozy up and breathe in the warmth of this story.

  You can find A Dance in Donegal available for purchase on Amazon in Kindle, Audiobook, Hardback or Paperback.
