Hazel McIntyre is a born storyteller and her six compelling books are proof of that seemingly effortless talent. Hazel McIntyre has used the wild and beautiful landscape of her native Culdaff in Inishowen, Co. Donegal, Ireland as the backdrop for her books. Hazel McIntyre has launched her sixth book in December 2003 entitled Bourne on The Wind which looks back once more at her Culdaff, Donegal childhood.
In this, her sixth book, Hazel McIntyre lets us into her heart and mind; what is so extraordinary is the care with which Hazel McIntyre tells the story of the people and events she admires and respects. A historical novelist is a unique kind of patriot: a believer in the Irish way of life who loves it so much that she can talk of the very best and the very worst of our past. In this book, Hazel lets us into the Inishowen of the 1820ths and 30ths through the eyes of her ancestors. It shows us her love of the land, and most of all, her love of the people, all of the people, who have shaped our Island of Ireland over the centuries. -
