"Powerful and haunting...It conveys in dazzling prose the heartaches and blessings of exile." SUNDAY TIMES Beyond the far west coast of Ireland lies the Great Blasket island. Beautiful, desolate and surrounded by wild seas, it was once home to a small but fiercely independent community whose mediaeval way of life had long vanished from the Irish mainland. They spoke a lost, pure form of Gaelic, telling tales from ancient times by the light of their turf fires; writers and romantics were drawn there, spellbound. But it couldn't last - by November 1953 the island was abandoned forever. Following the fate of the Kearney family, Morton recounts the disintegration of their community and their extraordinary search for new lives in the near-mythical paradise of America.
