Winter 1847, the Star of the Sea sets sail from Ireland for New York. Among the refugees are a maidservant, bankrupt Lord Merridith, an aspiring novelist and a maker of revolutionary ballads. Each is connected more deeply than they know.

A wonderful piece of writing
Wish I had read it
The reader was abysmal
Pronunciation of Gaelic and Irish towns dreadful
I guess he was trying to be West Briton but got in the way
"Excellent read, perfect narration"
I had been wanting to read this book for a long time and in the end chose the audible version so I could enjoy it while travelling in the car. It captivated me from the beginning to the end. Joseph 0'Connor is a genius. I felt like I was living the story at times, such was the depth of meaning. The narrator was a perfect choice, The best I have heard so far. I couldn't recommend it more
"Wonderfully read journey to the US"
I loved the different use of language in list book. Extensive characters of different classes all reanacted by Peter Marinker so well!
Meridith - he's a character to love and hate, feel sorry and regret for as well as despise!
Definitely Merideth, he gave the character depth
No but it made me think a lot.
This book does move around a lot cutting from one storyline/group of characters, to another. The through line is not always as clear as I would have liked, but it is throughly enjoyable and very interesting.
