About this product
- Description1865. The American Civil War is ending. Eighteen years after the famine ship Star of the Sea docked at New York, the daughter of two of her passengers sets out from Baton Rouge, Louisiana, on a walk across a devastated America. Eliza Duane Mooney is searching for a youngster she has t seen in four years, one of the hundred thousand children drawn into the war. His fate has been mysterious and will prove extraordinary. It's a walk that will have consequences for many seemingly unconnected survivors: a love-struck cartographer, a beautiful Latina poetess, rebel guerrilla Johnny Thunders, runaway slave Elizabeth Longstreet and the mercurial revolutionary Giacomo O'Keeffe, who commanded a brigade of Irish immigrants in the Union Army and is w Goverr of a western wilderness where thing is as it seems. Redemption Falls is a tale of war and forgiveness, of strangers in a strange land, of love put to the ultimate test. Packed with music, balladry, poetry and storytelling, this is a riveting tale of urgent contemporary resonance, from the author of the internationally best-selling Star of the Sea.
