Praise
"Delaney handles Shannon's therapeutic journey with sympathy and skill, introducing a diverse cast of Irish characters and layering the narrative with the sort of arcane native lore -- historical, cultural and geographic -- that adds a welcome depth of background."
From the Publisher
Annotation An American Marine chaplain seeks to rediscover his Irish roots after World War I in Frank Delaney's latest portrait of his beloved homeland. Shell-shocked from his war experience, Father Robert Shannon treks to Ireland to follow the river that bears his name, hoping that by discovering himself, he might begin to make sense of the violence he witnessed in the war, and the corruption he uncovered in his own Archdiocese. But soon after he arrives, he is caught up in the beginnings of the Irish civil war, and also pursued by a killer who wishes him to remain forever silent. Luckily, a community of supporters is there to help him escape the dangers of the present and uncover the puzzle of his past.
Editors Note In the summer of 1922, young American priest Robert Shannon, demoralized by the corruption he encountered in the Boston Archdiocese, arrives in Ireland in search of his soul and finds himself facing the dangers of Ireland's civil war.
Editors Note 2 In the summer of 1922, Robert Shannon, a Marine chaplain and a young American hero of the Great War, lands in Ireland. He still suffers from shell shock, and his mentor hopes that a journey Robert had always wanted to make—to find his family roots along the banks of the River Shannon—will restore his equilibrium and his vocation. But there is more to the story: On his return from the war, Robert had witnessed startling corruption in the Archdiocese of Boston. He has been sent to Ireland to secure his silence—permanently. As Robert faces the dangers of a strife-torn Ireland roiling in civil war, the nation’s myths and people, its beliefs and traditions, unfurl healingly before him. And the River Shannon gives comfort to the young man who is inspired by the words of his mentor: “Find your soul and you’ll live.”
