All Desires Known

Published by St Martin’s Press and Headline, 1993

Lucy and Michael Raven are in deep trouble. The cost of being the most talked-about couple in Dublin in 1904 is high. But their troubles really begin when a wily old moneylender suggests a most bizarre solution to all their woes.


  • If lavish romantic page-turners set your heart pounding, [this book] could be just the thing to fire up a chilly winter's evening — Irish Voice
  • A most entertaining romantic read [with] the added interest of its Irish setting. [Macdonald] is an acknowledged expert on the history of the last [=19th] century. It shows in the authentic nature of his writing about old Dublin and environs — Irish Press
  • ... combines strong characters and a brisk narrative full of trenchant observations about life, love, and the eternal communications problems between the sexes — Publishers Weekly
  • Talk-talk-talk and much of it bright and appealing — though, overall, the whole is a shade less lively than Macdonald’s feisty-lady portraits or the gossipy Hell Hath No FuryKirkus
  • He is every bit as bad as Dickens – Martin Seymour-Smith
