A prequel to Glimpses of Sky, A Journey too Far (working title) tells the story of Lady Fitzgerald up to the point she meets Martha, the lead protagonist of Glimpses. We first see her (Louise) in her family home in England meeting Lord Fitzgerald, who marries her and brings her to his estate in the wilds of Donegal. It is not an easy transition for Louise as barriers of culture, class and language close her in to the big house, and her husband’s travels leave her alone for months at a time. Life does improve for several years, but then something happens that pushes her into darkness. Will she ever be able to find her way out into the light again?
