About the AuthorKevin O'Connell is a native of New York City and a descendant of a young officer of what had—from 1690 to 1792—been the Irish Brigade of the French army, believed to have arrived in French Canada following the execution of Queen Marie Antoinette in October of 1793. At least one grandson subsequently returned to Ireland and Mr. O'Connell's own grandparents came to New York in the early twentieth century. He holds both Irish and American citizenship. He is a graduate of Providence College and Georgetown University Law Centre. For much of his four decades-long legal career, O'Connell has practiced international business transactional law, primarily involving direct-investment matters, throughout Asia (principally China), Europe, and the Middle East. The father of five children and grandfather of ten, he and his wife, Laurette, live with their golden retriever, Katie, near Annapolis, Maryland.

Bittersweet Tapestry: A Novel of Eighteenth Century Europe is the third installment from Kevin O’Connell fabulous The Derrynane Saga. I recommend this series to be read in order, readers would not be disappointed! I enjoyed catching up with Eileen O’Connell ten years later. The story is set in the eighteenth century. I loved the author’s details of the time. I felt like I was right there living among the people and experiencing what they are.
Bittersweet Tapestry: A Novel of Eighteenth Century Europe gets four and a half stars from me. I would love to read more of this series in the near future.
I received this book from the publisher. This review is 100% my own honest opinion.
