The Maiden of Ireland by Susan Wiggs

Available August 26: The Maiden of Ireland

*****4/5 stars

This Irish-English tale has the makings of a saga.

Recommended readers:

  • If you like characters from opposing sides.
  • if you prefer a little more history in your typical romance.

Here’s my Rankings:

  • 4/5 for characters
  • 4/5 for plot
  • 4/5 overall
  • Note: 2/5 some steaminess


A thoroughly enjoyable read, The Maiden of Ireland has the potential of a great saga (think Outlander).  John Wesley Hawkins is an English spy being manipulated by his Lord Protector and meets the pridefully strong Caitlin McBride as he carries out a mission that is directly in opposition of Caitlin. Wiggs weaves in some nice historical details and persons into the plot, giving The Maiden of Ireland a little more historical depth than a typical historical romance. It’s a must-read for any historical romance lover – but also has the potential to appeal to other genres.
