Annotation:
A bestseller back home, Frank Delaney's history of Ireland has now captured the hearts of Americans. Delaney creates a focus for his spellbinding tales: young Ronan O'Mara, age nine, who is in thrall to the narratives of a man known as the Storyteller when the old man appears in his town looking for a hot meal. Ronan's family takes him in and, inspired by what he hears around the fireside after supper, Ronan himself becomes a storyteller, obsessed with his land and its legends, and determined, when the man disappears, to find him again. His double quest--for both stories and storyteller--forms the basis for Delaney's enthralling saga.

Publishers Weekly
"Past and present weave together as Delaney entwines the lives of the Storyteller and Ronan in this rich and satisfying book." 12/13/2004
