The Foundling

The Foundling

Front cover of The Foundling by Loretto Leary

Robert Mountbellew, an English nobleman, returns to his Irish estate in the west of
Ireland in the summer of 1843 to spend a summer hunting and to gain closure to a
dysfunctional relationship with his now deceased father.

Mountbellew feels displaced, neither belonging to the upper or lower classes. Robert should be choosing a wife, but the life of an upper class English gent seems stifling
and unrewarding to him.

Robert’s desire to belong leads him into Irish politics of the 1800’s, and a love affair that his own class disapproves of. The summer of 1843 would liberate and confine Robert Mountbellew.
