The Secret of Eveline House.

My latest book was published in April of last year. Here is a little bit about it. It is available in bookshops in Ireland and on Amazon.

The Secret of Eveline House by Sheila Forsey,

Poolbeg Press, 2020.

From the author of Kilbride House


“A thrilling and beautifully written mystery, Sheila Forsey’s atmospheric page turner is alive with intrigue and mystery from first sentence to last.”

Niamh Boyce

“The Secret of Eveline House is a novel that completely captivates. Most certainly a book for all who are fans of Daphne du Maurier.”

The Secret of Eveline House is set in 1949 and the present day. It’s 1949 in Draheen and playwright Violet Ward, her husband Henry, and their young daughter have returned to Ireland from London to take up residence in Eveline House. But Violet has broken the rules. Her writing is banned in Ireland and labelled immoral. The people of Draheen are hostile to her. Her very being there outrages them.

In 2019 Emily O’Connor buys her dream house in Draheen. Eveline House is like a time capsule, locked up since 1950, still full of personal possessions and hauntingly beautiful photographs of the family that once lived there. A family that seems to have abruptly walked out of their lives and disappeared through the cracks of time.

Emily soon discovers that Draheen is a town of cruel secrets – secrets which are about to impact on her life in ways she could never have imagined.
