Star of the Sea
Winter 1847. Fleeing from an Ireland torn by injustice and natural disaster, The Star of the Sea sets sail for New York.
On the crowded decks are hundred of refugees, some brimming with optimism, many more desperate, all longing to start a new life. Among them are a group of people connected more deeply than they can possibly know, and amidst this throng stalks a killer hungry for vengeance.
The twenty-six day journey will see many lives end, others begin afresh. Passionate lovers are tenderly recalled, ducked responsibilities regretted too late; profound relationships shockingly unearthed. In a spellbinding story of tragedy and mercy, love and healing, the further the ship sails towards the Promised Land, the more her passengers seem moored to a past which will never let them go.
A novel as urgently contemporary in its preoccupation as it is historically revealing, this gripping and compassionate tale builds with the pace of a thriller to an unfortunate conclusion.
