Star of the Sea, a Good Read for Irish-Americans


January 1, 2010 by Evin

This Christmas, I gave my Irish-American husband Star of the Sea by Joseph O’Connor. Like most people, his leisure reading time is limited, but when a book captures his interest it pulls him back at every spare moment to read. Star of the Sea did just that!  Though it can by no means be considered a light read, he enjoyed it and the detail-rich experience that Irish would have had as famine era immigrants heading to America.

    Hi. I just found your blog. I am also Irish-American. I grew up in New England where I still live. I did live for a time on the west coast. I visited Ireland over the summer and we did go through cork although we were not able to stop there. My mother’s family is from Cork.
    Also, when I was a small girl I went to a school called Star of the Sea.
    I guess we have a few things in common.
    I would move to Ireland in a heart beat if it were possible for me.

Enough about me. What are you thinking?
