Following the end of the First World War, Eneas McNulty joins the British-led Royal Irish Constabulary. However with a sentence of death passed over him he is forced to flee Sligo, his friends, family and beloved girl.

This is the second copy of this book I have brought. The previous copy's fate can be seen here

The authors way of writing was amazing. I wouldn't have found this book without seeing it on the wishlist of nu-knees, so thank you for the unknowing pushing me to read this tale. I greatly enjoyed the way it was written. I really enjoyed the story also, although I found the ending a little weird.

Thank you very much, KiwiinEngland, for this book from my Wish List where I added it after enjoying Annie Dunne. I have rather a large number of books waiting to be read, so I don't know when I'll get around to this one, but I will eventually. It's several years since I visited Ireland in person but I like to let my imagination remind me and I look forward to returning for real one day, probably for the 2012 BookCrossing in Dublin next April!
Thank you also for the lovely book-patterned notepad and the chocolates/sweets which were parcelled up with the book and for the cute bookmark in my birthday card - your generosity and greetings are much appreciated! It was good to see you again over the weekend! What a great time we had in Nottingham! Happy birthday, lass :-)

The first thing to say about this powerful novel is how beautiful is the language in which it's written: lyrical, flowing, poetic, memorable, lilting ....
The story of Eneas reflects the story of Ireland through much of the 20th century, a tale told on an epic scale, having a significance beyond the time and place in which it's rooted.
Many of the Irish place-names brought back happy memories of the one and only time I toured Ireland: Sligo, Strandhill, Enniscrone, Knocknarea ....
Thank you again, KiwiinEngland! Much appreciated!
Now reserved for tree-hugger as I'm sure the writing style will appeal to her! I've been reading this while she's been in Dublin for the BookCrossing Convention :-)
