Description


Four unique voices, two parallel love stories, one sweeping novel rich in the history of nineteenth-century America. This remarkable debut draws from the great themes of literature famine, war, love, and family as it introduces four unforgettable characters.

Ethan McOwen is an Irish immigrant whose endurance is tested in Brooklyn and the Five Points at the height of its urban destitution; he is among the first to join the famed Irish Brigade and becomes a celebrated war photographer.

Marcella, a society girl from Spain, defies her father to become a passionate abolitionist.

Mary and Micah are slaves of varying circumstances, who form an instant connection and embark on a tumultuous path to freedom.

All four lives unfold in two beautiful love stories, which eventually collide. Written in gorgeous language that subtly captures the diverse backgrounds of the characters and interspersed with letters, journals, and dreams, this unforgettable story, rendered in cinematic detail, is about having faith in life's great meaning amidst its various tangles.
