"A huge achievement, as deep as it is wide, this is a book like no other of our times."
Nuala O'Faolain on Joseph O'Connor's Redemption Falls
Eighteen years after the famine ship Star of the Sea docked at New York, the daughter of two of her passengers sets out across civil war torn America in search of one of its legion of missing children. An epic tale of hatreds and mercies, of balladry and the blues, Redemption Falls is the eagerly awaited new novel from Joseph O'Connor, author of the international best-seller Star of the Sea.
"It was said of James Joyce that he could create a character by describing the way he held an umbrella. Taylor has that talent."
The Vancouver Sun
Vancouver‘s Timothy Taylor shares with O'Connor a miniaturist‘s eye for telling detail, a profound sense of place, and a prodigious dramatic imagination. Widely recognised as one of Canada's prose masters, the former Toronto banker has blazed a literary trail with his prize-winning debut Stanley Park, his coruscating short story collection Silent Cruise and his latest tour de force Story House.
