Her Name is Rose

Her Name is Rose HC Mech.inddA native New Yorker now living in Ireland, Boston College alumna Christine Breen is the author of the new book Her Name is Rose (St. Martin’s Press, 2015). Breen is the co-author of several non-fiction titles about country living in County Clare and the author of the travel memoir So Many Miles to Paradise: From Clare to There. Her Name is Rose, Breen’s first novel, is about the journey Iris, adoptive mother of 19-year-old Rose, takes to find Rose’s birth mother–a fulfillment of a promise Iris made to her late husband. According to Publishers Weekly: “Breen’s characters immediately invite the reader to go on a heartwrenching journey that’s enhanced by her skillful plotting and authentic, lyrical descriptions of the Emerald Isle. A moving first novel.”
