It is 1890 and Parnell is the uncrowned king of Ireland. But thirteen-year-old Sally Gallagher, “Scatterbrain Sally” as her mother and youngersister Katie call her, has no interest in politics. She is happy to read books and leave the running of the house to those who like housework.A shocking tragedy changes the lives of the sisters. Instead of being the daughters of a comfortable Donegal farmer and fisherman, they have to become hired servants, bound for six months to masters they don’t know.

Elizabeth O’Hara has written an exciting story that has its share of sorrow and joy. She creates in Scatterbrain Sally a new and unforgettable heroine.

Part of an award winning trilogy about Sally Gallagher.
