A farcical romance novel that envelops four main characters. Alfred Saint James is a born psychopath, a local councillor with an absolute hatred for his younger brother, Colin. Colin is a sweet-natured chef who - just once - would like to get the better of his brother. Fatima is a Turkish concubine (prostitute) who moved to Ireland for a fresh start, she meets Colin at a turning point in his life. Mamie May was Colin's fiance until, on the day of their wedding, she announced that she had married Freddie. Wherever possible Freddie has destroyed Colin's life, but is Colin the better man? Will he get back the family's heirloom pear shaped engagement ring and save his brother's life?
'Full of Irish nostalgia. Hilarious, charming and a little bit bonkers - I loved it!' -Jennifer Zamparelli, 2FM
Domhnall's debut novel, Sister Agatha, was released late last year to critical acclaim (Woman's Way: 'Beautifully written. With Sister Agatha, surely, he has secured himself as one to watch in contemporary Irish literature. We loved it - Book of the Week'). It was a Number One Amazon bestseller and readers have compared him to the likes of Tom Robbins and Colin Bateman. The book has also built something of a cult following in the Rick O'Shea Book Club. Thanks to his profile as a journalist, along with his lead role in TG4's Ros na Run, Domhnall managed to secure wall-to-wall publicity to support Sister Agatha's release with highlights including two full features in both The Irish Times and Woman's Way, and another in The Irish Independent, along with extensive coverage in The Daily Mail, The Daily Star, Stellar, RTE, Writing.ie, GCN, Irish Tatler Man, Positive Life and RSVP. We are looking forward to developing his profile as an author further with the release of Colin and the Concubine.
