Dads ‘N’ Lads

Star of the Sea by Joseph O’Connor
Published by Secker & Warburg, 2002

In the bitter winter of 1847, from an Ireland torn by injustice and natural disaster, the Star of the Sea sets sail for New York. On board are hundreds of fleeing refugees, some brimming with optimism, many more desperate. Each is connected more deeply than they can possibly know. But a camouflaged killer is stalking the decks, hungry for the vengeance that will bring absolution. The further the ship sails towards the Promised Land, the more her passengers seem moored to a past that will never let them go.

'A terrific story...A stealthily gripping narrative' Daily Telegraph.
