Walking Through The Mist.
Walking Through The Mist, my first novel, tells the story of twenty-one year old Aidan O’Connell, a musician from Derry, Ireland. As a singer and guitarist with Macready’s Bridge, he is on tour in America when tragedy strikes back home. Upon his return to Ireland, he must learn how to rebuild his life, letting go of some people and things he held close in order to move on.
His Macready’s Bridge bandmates, Patrick Leahy, Michael Sullivan and Niall Donoghue, and their manager Mack Macready, help Aidan through the challenges he faces, all while dealing with their own life issues.
Ireland’s rich setting serves as the perfect backdrop for this moving, memorable story.

Joyce Grinewich offers the following review of Walking Through The Mist:
“Walking Through the Mist” an inspiring first novel from author Sinead Tyrone and one I highly recommend. I enjoyed it so much the first time, I took a second read to re-visit the characters I would want to call friends and to tour once again the sights, smells and tastes of the rich Irish countryside.
During my second ‘visit’ I was taken by God’s loving presence throughout this story of difficult life events and devastating loss. God never leaves us alone, in good times or bad he is with us, His love abundant in friends, neighbors and the beauty of nature. Aidan surely was comforted by God’s presence in the sweet smell of the ocean, the roar of the waves, the feeling of sand beneath his feet just as much as he was comforted by the love of friends and neighbors during an incredibly difficult time in his life.
There are many times each of us feels all alone, dealing with life challenges and changes. This novel reinforces the knowledge that we are never truly alone. God’s loving hand is always there guiding us as we ‘walk through the mist’.
This is one of those books you will want to read again and again. It’s message of love and hope is one you will want to re-visit.
Agnes O’Leary’s review of Walking Through The Mist states:
I have always been a reader. However, in recent years, I’ve taken to reading mysteries, suspense and who done its. Several months back I was intrigued by a title I came across in a listing of best sellers and new authors. Walking Through The Mist caught my eye.
I was delighted to find that a dear friend was a friend of the author, who graciously sent me a copy.
I discovered immediately that this was not my “type” of read. But I soon found myself experiencing the depth of personal loss, the value of true friendship, the charm of the Irish people, their faith and beautiful countryside. As I “walked through the mist” with Aidan on his journey, I met Patrick, Michael, Niall and Mack their families, friends and neighbors. I could almost hear their music, smell the farm lands and feel the sea breeze so skillfully described in the book’s passages.
Take time from your usual read, sit in a comfortable chair with a warm cup of tea, and go Walking in the Mist, you’ll have a pleasant journey. Thank you Sinead Tyrone!
