Description
(Shortlist, Irish Novel of the Year) It is 1865, 18 years after the Irish famine-ship Star of the Sea (also the title of Joseph O'Connor's previous novel) docked at New York. A daughter of its journey, Eliza Duane Mooney, sets out on foot from Baton Rouge, Louisiana, on a quest that will take her across a continent ravaged by Civil War. Lucia-Cruz McLelland, a stunning intellectual, deserts New York City to cast her fate with mercurial hero James Con O'Keeffe, a convict and revolutionary who is now governor of a Western territory. Rebel guerrilla Cole McLaurenson fuels his own westward mission with the blind rage of an outlaw, while runaway slave Elizabeth Longstreet turns resentment into grace. The fates of these disparate characters collide in the desolate Western township of Redemption Falls in this 2007 Dickensian tale of war and forgiveness and strangers in a strange land.

"This book took my breath away. If you're interested at all in the American Civil War, Irish participation in same, love, the expansion of the West, you'll delight in this novel."—Frank McCourt
