More About This Book

Overview

After living in New York for twenty-four years, Shane Connolly receives an unexpected letter from his son Stephen McCabe, whom he'd never met. Stephen is worried about his half-brothers, Colin and Barry, who'd recently joined the Invincibles, a group of thugs and petty thieves in Dublin who're headed for serious trouble with the law. Because their father had died five months earlier and Stephen has nowhere else to turn for help, Shane embarks for his native land, hoping to help his son convince his half-brothers of the folly of their ways.
On his voyage across the Atlantic in April 1882, Shane wonders how he'll get through to Colin and Barry because they have no reason to follow his advice. And what about their mother Fiona, the great love of Shane's life? Will she be warm and welcoming after so many years? Or will she harbor deep resentment toward him because he'd returned to Ireland too late in 1858 to keep her from marrying another man who'd promised to give her unborn child a good home? Only time will tell, and during Shane's return to his native land he sees no reason to feel hopeful.
