Meanwhile, in France, at École Militaire in Paris, Hugh O’Connell is progressing with his studies, whilst at Versailles Marie Antoinette– until just recently Eileen’s wee little archduchess–confronts her unhappiness at court, especially the sad state of her still-unconsummated marriage, made all the more complex as she is aware of the blossoming relationship between Hugh and the strikingly beautiful young widowed Princess Marie Thérèse Louise of Savoy.
Bittersweet Tapestry is a tale of stark contrasts–between Hugh’s life of increasing prominence amidst the glitter and intrigue of the French court and Art and Eileen’s in English-occupied Ireland– especially as the latter progresses into a dark, violent and bloody tale . . . ultimately involving an epic tragedy, the events leading up to and those occurring in its dramatic wake will permanently impact the O’Learys–and their far-flung circle of family and friends in Ireland and across Europe.
