  • Mary’s Ireland

    Mary’s Ireland is a love story between an Irish barmaid and a Polish sailor. From a working class Catholic family of nineteenth century Belfast, Mary Cannon meets Walenty Nikodemski in her pub, The Shamrock. Initially, Mary is taken by Walenty’s looks especially his eyes, which shine jade black ‘seeing right through me to the very white of my skin’. With attraction battling suspicion Mary gradually sees more deeply into the character, family and home of Walenty, or Nikoda, as sailors call him. Mary never gains the full picture.

    Mary’s largely Catholic Ireland under centuries of Protestant British rule is compared to Nikoda’s Poland under centuries of Tsarist Russian occupation. Fighting hardship with family humour, love and their Catholic faith, the Cannons confront poverty, war, famine, corruption, violence, disease, death and family break up. From a peasant background, Nikoda’s family endures similar hardships also accepting them as a normal part of life, once again buoyed by Catholicism, long banned by the Russian Tsars.

    These cultural similarities include bigotry, which is often based on self-serving fabrications. Mary’s Ireland reflects on this bias through the troubles between the Protestants and Catholics of Belfast, the lives of Jews, nationalism and religion. The Cannons and Nikodemskis bring their prejudices, bravado and egos to the traumas of Crimean War of 1853–1856, the subsequent Russian-Turkish war of 1877-1878 and the battles on Belfast’s streets. Wealth, poverty and power breed the bias and underpin the novel, governing life from food, clothing and housing through work and education to religious and political freedom.

    Encased in historical events and settings, Mary’s Ireland enshrines the human capacity to survive hardships and indeed flourish within them, ‘turning donkeys into racehorses’.

    Mary’s Ireland is the first of a trilogy with Mary’s Poland and Mary’s War.

  • Unmarked

    Cash has been abolished in a strategic move to force the population to be ‘marked’ with identifying barcodes.

    Elisha Dullard is warned of the coming cataclysm in the Book of Revelation, but doesn’t believe it until she discovers her friend’s dead body.

    Elisha may find true love, but she also learns the terrifying capacity for human persecution.

    Technology rules in this cashless society, where citizens are marked with identifying barcodes that track every transaction they make.

    But one young woman, Elisha, uneasy about the unquestioning dependence on technology and its dominance over people’s lives, refuses to be marked. Like others who resist, she pays dearly for failing to conform to society and finds herself cut off from her friends and family.
    Elisha fights even harder to remain unmarked when someone warns her that the human barcodes are a sign of the End of Times. The question is, can one person’s rebellion prevent the end of the world?

    Author Kate Hansen’s part dystopian, part-fantasy tale is a mirror of our own high-tech-dependent world, and a timely reminder that technology should be handled thoughtfully.
