Growing up and growing old. These two side effects of life creep up on Finnula ‘Fudge’ Ginnane and her mother, Mary, simultaneously, yet while the young country girl is helped through this confusing time by her best friend, Lilly McDermott, the older woman must face advancing age and the heartache of a forbidden relationship alone.
This tragicomic tale spins a web of unexpected love, rejection, discovery, loss and finally, hope.
About The Author
Patricia FitzGerald-Petri was born and grew up in Ireland though she did spend a few brief years of her childhood life in Brazil.
After school, she studied Graphic Design and Visual Communications at the National College of Art and Design in Dublin, and worked for a short time as a freelance designer before moving to Germany. After her children were born, Patricia decided against further education in order to catch up with the now new fast-moving world of computer graphics, but instead, returned to a language school in Ireland to obtain qualifications in TEFL, Teaching English as a Foreign Language. At present, she works as an assistant in international business.
Patricia was an EPPIE 2003 finalist with "Making Tracks", originally published under the title "Peggy Does a Runner". She has also written three other novels, "Casting Off", "Over The Wall" and "There and Back", as well as a tongue-in-cheek article on epublishing for Scribesworld called "Frisson of Passion".
Patricia's daughters, Jenny and Nadia, are now in their twenties and she lives with her partner in a small Bavarian village. When not writing, she loves sailing, cycling and, of course, reading.
