The Belle of Belfast is a story of great love, heartbreak and loss. Set in the Catholic district of The Falls road against the backdrop of the Great Depression, World War II and later ‘The Troubles’ in Northern Ireland, feisty and fearless Isabelle McKitterick courageously battles to come to terms with what life has dished out to her.
Poverty, disappointment and Northern Ireland’s troubled history can’t crush the spirit of Isabelle, nor her deep, abiding love for her Jack.
Based on a true story of a brave and fearless woman who faces the worst of the worst and comes through it all with love and hope in her heart. It’s an inspirational story that lives up to the motto ‘never give up, never give in!’adversity.
It is both a remarkable true love story spanning 50 years and several continents, as well the author's family journey to start a new life in a new country.
