Refraction Series
Angela Koenig

Author:   

Follow the adventures of Rhodes Scholar Jeri O’Donnell who becomes embroiled in Ulster’s fight for independence from Britain. Later Jeri travels through the Himalayan highlands where she meets Kelly Corcoran, a tourist from the United States. Kelly is willing to gamble her heart, as Jeri struggles against involving anyone in her perilous and chaotic life.

In an epic siege largely ignored by the wider world, Kelly, who was prepared to give up comforts and certainties when she became part of Jeri’s nomadic life, encounters more than physical danger. Her ability to maintain her core integrity is assaulted by the inevitable ugliness of war. For Jeri, the true battle is confronting her attraction to violence as she struggles against losing herself in the exhilaration of combat.

 

 

Rebellion in Ulster

During a visit to relatives in Northern Ireland, Rhodes Scholar Jeri O’Donnell’s plans for a scholarly life are shattered by a tragedy that kills her beloved cousin, Fiona, and sends Jeri to Armagh Women’s Prison. In Armagh, IRA volunteer Jill Leary attempts to recruit the young American to Ulster’s fight for independence from Britain, while the mysterious Arkadia O’Malley seeks nothing less than Jeri’s soul.

 

When Jeri is released as precipitously as she was imprisoned, she chooses to embrace Ulster’s struggle as her own and joins the Provisional IRA. Jeri is sent out of Northern Ireland to be trained, first to the Irish Republic and then to Eastern Europe. Cool under pressure and fierce in action, she becomes the ideal urban soldier whether in Rotterdam, Belgrade, or Belfast.

 

Attracting women has never been difficult for the intense young woman from Southie, Boston’s Irish neighborhood, but Jeri’s remorse following Fiona’s death makes intimacy virtually impossible. Several women try to reach her, but the violence of her life only drives Jeri further from human comfort. Although she can never quit questioning the morality of her actions, Jeri has a taste for fighting that she once hoped to leave behind in the streets of Southie. Then a bomb explodes and the resulting carnage plunges Jeri into a despair that forces her to reconsider what choices, if any, are left to her.

Rendezvous in the Himalaya

Haunted by memories of the disastrous Troubles of Northern Ireland, Jeri O’Donnell has joined forces with her old friend, Rafi Gregoric, who is a power broker in the new Russia. Their current venture is arranging a meeting between a Tibetan monk and a distinguished UN official. The monk has evidence of brutal Chinese oppression that may enable the reforms that swept the soviet Union to reach China. Guiding the UN official through Himalayan highlands is exactly the kind of work Jeri needs to exercise her skills and exorcise her conscience.

 

Just as the mountain trek begins, Jeri encounters Kelly Corcoran, a tourist for the United States. Kelly is adrift in Nepal, emotionally desolated by the recent loss of her brother and his friends to AIDS. Both women recognize that a powerful connection links them, but while Kelly is willing to gamble her heart, Jeri struggles against involving anyone in her perilous and chaotic life.

 

An uneasy compromise finds Kelly accompanying the small group at least to the Tibetan border. On this perilous expedition, Kelly will need every ounce of her courage and nerve to convince Jeri that the future only makes sense if they are willing to risk it together

Requiem for Vukovar

Requiem for Vukovar continues the Refraction series and the exploits of Jeri O’Donnell and her partner, Kelly Corcoran.

 

Summer, 1991: Europe stands on the verge of its most violent crisis since World War II. Yugoslavia is crumbling and two of its republics, Croatia and Serbia, are reverting to an historic hostility. Aware of the gathering storm, Jeri agrees to escort Alenka, the sister of a friend, away from Vukovar, a small Croatian city.

 

Jeri plots a course that ought to be a quick drive, but instead, plunges them into a civil war, and they find themselves afoot with other fleeing refugees. Kelly and Jeri finally reach their destination only to find that Alenka is reluctant to leave her home and friends. Too soon, the avenues of their escape shut down.

 

In an epic siege largely ignored by the wider world, Kelly, who was prepared to give up comforts and certainties when she became part of Jeri’s nomadic life, encounters more than physical danger. Her ability to maintain her core integrity is assaulted by the inevitable ugliness of war. For Jeri, the true battle is confronting her attraction to violence as she struggles against losing herself in the exhilaration of combat.
