Publisher's Summary

He gave his word, refused to break a vow, and lost his one chance at true love. Now they've come for his land. Hap Wilkes is a man facing a painful past, an increasingly uncertain future, and now fights with everything left in a broken and failing body, to keep the one thing still left to him - his pride.
The Irish Cowboy is a story of loss, secrets, redemption, and the always present human yearning for love and forgiveness, and marks the most personal novel to date from best-selling author D.W. Ulsterman.

I wanted to like this novel but ended up aghast at it!

In these days of political turmoil in this country, I often wonder how others come by their positions. This book provided some clues to that query. It bordered on propaganda mixed with a ridiculous parody of the old westerns my generation grew up watching. The Federal Bureau of Land Management is portrayed as a wild horse and dog killing entity that tramples individual rights. They have endless helicopters, officers, and budgets available to protect reptiles as they destroy one man's life. Even when individuals, not the entire Federal government, are exposed as the root of the problem, the heroes are the local townspeople and their local representatives (with the exception of a fighter-jet wielding general). Everything turns out wonderfully for the "good guys" with every mistake forgiven by loved ones in heaven. It grew increasingly unrealistic and dangerous as the chapters unfolded. Life holds complications that can't be cured by a group chorus of "The Battle Hymn of the Republic!" It builds excessive individualism and local rights as the only entities worth trust. Anything national is evil, and one doesn't have to repent of their errors in life because they get to relive their life in the next world.
As one who loves tales of the west, horses, romance, Ireland, and heroes, I was disappointed.

Get a new narrator.

Loved the story but hated the narration! I do not recommend the narrated version, one would hope that at the very least the narrator would learn the proper pronunciation of cities and events. In Montana or most the the western States, Rodeo isn't a street we shop on!
