Product description

Beyond the far west coast of Ireland lies the Great Blasket Island. Beautiful, desolate and surrounded by wild seas, it was once home to a small but fiercely independent community. By November 1953, the island was abandoned forever. Following the fate of the Kearney family, Moreton recounts the disintegration of their community and their search for new lives in the paradise of America.

Review quote

"Powerful and haunting... It conveys in dazzling prose the heartaches and blessings of exile."
