Brave Hearts cover_FRONT-FINAL.jpg
Advance Praise for Brave Hearts

Mahoney writes about her people who, with dreams aplenty, made San Francisco and the California Delta their home. Sit down with a cup of tea, open the book, and settle in for her engaging, imaginative family tale.”

      — Patrice Vecchione, co-editor of Ink Knows No Borders: Poems of the Immigrant and Refugee Experience


“Brave Hearts is such a vivid account of the Irish immigrant experience that as a college librarian I would enthusiastically recommend it to students of California and US history. As a reader, I recommend it for the sheer pleasure of a page-turning family epic.”

              --Mary Thomas, author and Librarian, Foothill College


"Jean Mahoney has brought the immigrant experience vividly to life in this warm, authentic, humorous historical fiction tale of her Irish ancestors and the early days of San Francisco.  The tales, trials and triumphs of her family will live on forever."

            --Kate Aver Avraham, author of Joey's Way and What Will You Be, Sara Mee?


Jean Mahoney has a gift for bringing the voices of her Irish ancestors to life.  What a pleasure to meet these wonderful courageous characters through her lively historical fiction.” 

                  -- Laura Davis, The Courage to Heal
