Both occupy Maeve MacKeighrys world in 1870, and she must decide which will win her heart. Leprechauns are feared, even in Ireland, but that doesnt prevent Maeve from striking up a friendship with one who lives near her village.

But once Maeve becomes a young woman, the local villagers start to gossip, especially since the MacKeighrys are known to practice magic in their home. Its just for entertainment, but the town folk dont see it that way. Rather than be outcasts, the MacKeighrys set off to America to homestead in Kansas, vowing to leave their magical ways and friends behind.

Little do they know that Maeves friend follows and protects them on their journey.The MacKeighrys encounter many adventures along the way to Kansas, only to find a simple sod house on their new farm at the end of the journey. The untamed land offers a fresh start for the family, as well as two very interesting men who both compete for Maeve’s attention. Pretty young women in a wild western town are a rarity. But can she forget her magical friend, and turn her attention to two of the most interesting men she has ever met? Perhaps cowboys and outlaws have a certain charm that a leprechaun doesnt, after all.Most of the novel takes place in Kansas in 1870 and is based on my family’s history.

The idea of the MacKeighry’s sod house came from the home of my great grandfather. I was lucky enough to visit it as a teenager before the house was destroyed. One of the characters, Nikki Fuerst, is based on an ancestor, a prince from Austria who was disinherited for marrying a commoner and sent off to America.

Stories I’ve been told my entire life about my family’s history and traditions, such as levitating tables, are included in Near The Wild.
