Patricia Falvey: The Linen Queen - a 2011 fiction book

I confess I have special feelings for people born in Northern Ireland and it is not difficult to find the author, Patricia Falvey, likable.  The Linen Queen is her second book set at the start of World War  2.
Sheila McGee is18 years-old and self-centered. She dreams of leaving Ireland and be free and successful in England. For that, she just has to win the annual Linen Queen beauty pageant. From then on, she has to choose between two men, and maybe become slightly less selfish.
The book is praised for good writing and accurate descriptions of Ireland.
