By deconstructing the most defining moment of Irish history, and breaking down its essential components, he has given a face and a voice to the million who died.

A brave and artful novel.

PRAISE FOR STAR OF THE SEA
"A brave and artful novel."--THE NEW YORK TIMES BOOK REVIEW

"In Star of the Sea, O'Connor has written not only an epic novel, but also a very important one. By deconstructing the most defining moment of Irish history, and breaking down its essential components, he has given a face and a voice to the million who died."
--IRISH ECHO

"Along the way O'Connor even brings in a thoroughly gripping murder mystery that is all the more affecting for the depth he gives his characters. They add up to a powerfully symbolic microcosm of the time. Bottom Line: Shining Star."--PEOPLE
