This novel follows the story of Alice and Redmond Gilraine from Achill Island to London, Brisbane and Rochester, New York and back to Achill. It chronicles their adventures, tragedies and joys. This collection of characters live ordinary lives illuminated by love of family, stoic resilience in the face of misfortune and a grounded sense of place.  It focuses on the challenges the family overcomes in coping with emigration, adoption, loneliness and depression. Lily’s life-search mirrors the problems adopted people have in accessing their roots, heredity and medical history. Above all, the tale celebrates the indomitable spirit and zest for life of an Irish family abroad.

H. A. McHugh loves family, reading, storytelling, travelling, socialising and golf. Writing has been a lifelong interest and ambition. Jinxed set initially in Achill, island of dreams, is her second novel. Inheritance: Gift or Burden was published in 2015.

The author lives in County Clare.
