During 2016, as Ireland celebrates the centenary of the Easter Rising,
Cara Cassidy looks back to 1986.
While helping a friend with her show hunters at the Dublin Horse Show,
Cara stirs up memories of 1986 and the teenager Suzanne O'Grady, a horse-mad
girl who vanished. Hurricane Charley added confusion to the missing person case.
Ireland has changed greatly during the intervening years. Today's website
appeals have produced no results, and Special Branch Detective Sergeant
Ricky Norton, charged with protecting the Aga Khan during the Show, has
asked former show jumper Cara to aid a cold case review.
Some secrets are too dangerous to reawaken....

Moya O’Leary is thirteen when the Coronavirus Pandemic reaches Ireland.
Her class is sent home, to take lessons on line, and her family has to adapt to
the quarantine situation. Moya is blessed with a lively young Connemara pony which
she was hoping to enter in jumping competitions. That seems less likely as the country
enters strict lockdown. Her mum and dad are more concerned about her little brother Michael,
who is on the autism spectrum. If Moya can find a way to keep training, she will be
ready to ride when competitions start again. But the rising tensions produce
challenges, and life may never go back to normal.
Supporting World Book Night since 2012
Shakespeare's birthday is 23rd April, which is why the date was chosen for World Book Night.
On this night many publishers make new books available free for
distribution by volunteers. The idea is to spread the love of books and
the joy of reading to as many people as possible, so books will be
given to people who do not normally read them, or who do not read often.
America and the UK and Ireland each organised free events in previous
years, such as readings. This year only the UK and Irish not-for-profit
group is hosting events and distributing books. An event may be
organised near you! Go to the WBN website and check the map nearer to
the time to see what is happening in your area.
