Product description


"Wonderful entertainment [that] encompasses Irish history and politics, a mystery, a quest, and a coming-of-age story . . . by a masterful storyteller."--The Boston Globe

"Entrancing . . . Delaney unleashes a cavalcade of memorable characters worthy of John Irving. . . . But the book's fascinating Kelly women give the story its true magic. . . . Teeming with life and a sprawling, chaotic energy, [this novel] scores another goal for Delaney."--The Plain Dealer

"Delaney tells a wonderful story about Ireland in a troubled time, following Ben into manhood with compassion, intrigue and humor."--The Oklahoman

"This expansive tale of politics, tragedy, and revenge is Irish storytelling at its best. Full of vibrant, well-crafted characters and satisfyingly high drama, it will appeal to fans of sweeping Irish sagas."--Library Journal

"An inventive, amazing work."--BookPage
