‘The Linen Queen’ follows the theme of ‘The Yellow House,’ but in the era up to and including World War II. Sheila McGee is as determined to find a better way, a better life as Eileen O’Neill is in ‘The Yellow House.’ Sheila, a beauty queen, works long and exhausting hours in the Irish linen mills. She has a temper and a willfulness, stemming more from dissatisfaction than ire. In time, with no flagging of spirit, she learns about love, political commitment, and developing enormous empathy for Ireland, the people and events that surround and involve her. Sheila wisely discovers the responsibilities of being an involved and passionate friend, citizen, and lover.
