Book Review: An Irish Hope Novel Book 1

Kathia has been one of my all-time favorite authors — writing as Kate Perry — and I have missed her writing. I am so glad that Kathia is back!

Oh wow. I enjoyed this book! It’s a delightful and complex love story. But what makes this book stand out for me is how the author incorporated magical-realism into the tale. Is magical-realism an oxymoron? I hope not because Kathia made the magic believable, realistic. I loved how she incorporated a powerful healing ability through painting as the central plot mechanism in Abigail’s story. No angst, just excellent character development and storytelling. Plus, the conversations between Abigail and her guides are priceless. Loved it!

So fun, unique, and has a lovely Irish setting perfect for St. Patrick’s Day. Overall, it’s a great read, and I am looking forward to more marvelous stories from Kathia.

Highly recommend delving into this magical Irish story!

I’ve read all of Kate Perry’s books, most before I started blogging. However, I think the Summerhill series is my favorite. Please visit my review of Say You Will.

An act of love that backfires.
A desperate quest that sends her to Ireland.
A hope for healing when everything looks impossible…
PAINTER OF SOULS, the first book in the Irish Hope series by #1 international bestselling author Kathia.

A world-renown artist from New Orleans, Abigail Angevine has always known two things: the women in her line have incredible psychic gifts and that she can heal people through her paintings.

So it’s a no brainer to do a painting for her professional dancer best friend when she needs serious help. But Abby’s attempt to heal her backfires—badly—leaving her best friend unable to walk and Abby unable to paint.

Powerless to correct the damage she knows is her fault, Abby searches for an alternate to cure them both. The only hope of healing rests in Ireland with Dr. Carrick Fionnlagh, known as the Miracle Worker. But Finn is haunted by his own ghosts and insists that he can’t help.

Now, she isn’t only trying to heal her friend but the good doctor as well. And the stakes raise when she realizes that he isn’t just a doctor to her—he just might be her future.

Kathia. Writing as Kate Perry, I have over 30 bestselling books and have been translated into several languages. I’m one of Apple Book’s all-time bestselling authors, ranking alongside EL James and James Patterson.

In a world where people find it difficult to retain hope, I use my stories to inspire and connect. I believes love wins, and my books champion that belief.
