The powerful storytelling that made The Secrets of Armstrong House and The Left-Handed Marriage bestsellers

- +

1869 – When Milandra Carter arrives to live on Sackville Street as a young widow, she becomes the talk of Dublin. Firstly, she scandalises society by refusing to wear the mandatory widow’s weeds.  She then sets her sights on marrying Nicholas Fontenoy. But Nicholas is already engaged to Bishop Staffordshire’s daughter, Constance.

But is there something darker behind Milandra’s professed love for Nicholas? As Milandra attempts to lure Nicholas away from Constance, a chain of events is set off that leads to bribery, blackmail and murder.

1916 - Milandra Carter, now in her seventies, is one of the wealthiest and most respected women in Dublin.  After attending a family reunion at Easter, on arrival back to her mansion on Sackville Street she is confronted by a gunman. Milandra fears he has come to avenge a past grudge. But quickly realises she has been caught up in something much bigger.

Then, as Dublin explodes with the Easter Rising, Amelia Robinson desperately tries to rescue her grandmother, Milanda, trapped in her house. But the events unfolding on Sackville Street will unravel a decades old mystery, a secret that was to be carried to the grave.

On Sackville Street

Only A o Connor can masterfully keep you suspenced after page turning for 6 hours. What looks like happy ever after on three occasions the reader is completely wrong footed and so keeps turning and turning those pages. What an incredible woman is Miranda the devious evil villain who outwits Constance to her death. This is in my opinion the piece de resistance by A O Connor. He just cannot get better. I just cannot wait for the next enthralling masterpiece. Please hurry up with that pen!!!!
