An Irish Miracle is the story of Dillon and Alastar Connolly, young men separated by two generations and searching for their places in the world. From an Ohio farm to western Ireland and from the 1940s to present day, their journeys take them through peaceful countryside and personal challenges. The paths of these two young men cross in unexpected ways, never far from the people, the horses, and the lands they love. Dillon begins his part of the adventure with more than a little trepidation, but he soon finds himself drawn to the beauty of the Irish countryside, and the kindness of the Irish people he meets along the way. Alastar's gift and passion for horses leads him to Ballybrit, home of the world-famous Galway Racecourse . . . and the fiery redhead, Rita O'Reilly. Once you follow the emotional journeys of these two young men, you'll feel drawn to the Emerald Isle, just as they both were. And when five o'clock comes around, you just might find yourself searching for a well-poured pint of Guinness . . . or two. Rob Mahan lives in the San Francisco Bay Area with his wife Linda and the two Schnauzers who are his constant writing companions. Inspired by a dream shortly after his only son graduated from college and moved across the country, An Irish Miracle is Robâs first full-length novel.

An Irish Miracle

An Irish Miracle came into being almost by accident, at least in the beginning. Linda and I had just arrived on the West Coast to start our next adventure, and after thirty-some years as an engineer in American manufacturing, I was about to start my own new chapter as an author. A science fiction author, that is. I was reading through my writing journal, when I happened on an entry that started:

My son Kyle moved to California two days ago to start a job and an adventure. I haven’t been sleeping well and last night, I dreamed an idea for a story:
I read through the idea I had recorded several years before and thought it would make a nice short story, a warm-up writing exercise. I had grown up in rural Ohio, and my father’s family traces its roots back to Ireland. What’s not to like about fertile farmland and beautiful, green countryside as the backdrop for a story about a young man searching for a long-lost relative and learning some unexpected truths along the way?...
