Описание: In the summer of 1922, Robert Shannon, a Marine chaplain and a young American hero of the Great War, lands in Ireland. He still suffers from shell shock, and his mentor hopes that a journey Robert had always wanted to make--to find his family roots along the banks of the River Shannon--will restore his equilibrium and his vocation. But there is more to the story: On his return from the war, Robert had witnessed startling corruption in the Archdiocese of Boston. He has been sent to Ireland to secure his silence--permanently. As Robert faces the dangers of a strife-torn Ireland roiling in civil war, the nation's myths and people, its beliefs and traditions, unfurl healingly before him. And the River Shannon gives comfort to the young man who is inspired by the words of his mentor: "Find your soul and you'll live."

Описание: Author Frank Delaney sweeps readers off to Ireland with this novel that captures the eternal magnetism of the island and its tumultuous history. It is a story of an extraordinary land which unfolds through pre-history to modern times.
In the summer of 1943, as World War II rages on, Ben MacCarthy is haunted by the disappearance of his wife, the actress Venetia Kelly. Searching for purpose by collecting stories for the Irish Folklore Commission, he travels to a remote seaside cottage to profile the enigmatic Miss Kate Begley, the Matchmaker of Kenmare. Ben is immediately captivated by her, and a powerful friendship is forged. But when Charles Miller, a handsome American military intelligence officer, arrives on the scene, Miss Begley looks to make a match for herself. Miller needs a favor, but it will be dangerous. Under the cover of their neutrality as Irish citizens, Miss Begley and Ben travel to London and effectively operate as spies. As they are drawn more deeply and painfully into the conflict, both discover the perils of neutrality--in both love and war.
Steeped in colorful history, The Matchmaker of Kenmare is a lush and surprising novel, rich as myth, tense as a thriller, and, like all grand tales, harrowing, sometimes hilarious, and heartbreaking.

Описание: In July 1943, as World War II rattles Europe, Ben McCarthy (returning narrator of Venetia Kelly's Traveling Show) meets an enigmatic woman--Miss Begley, the sharp-witted matchmaker of Kenmare--and a powerful friendship begins. Miss Begley helps Ben rebuild himself after the savage loss of his beloved wife, and he stands by her as she nervously makes a match for herself--with Charles Miller, an impressive U.S. officer. Miller tests Miss Begley's infatuation by sending her on a dangerous errand into enemy terrain. Exploiting the freedom of movement granted to citizens of neutral Ireland, she and Ben snatch a man the Americans need ahead of D-Day. The adventure changes many lives, draws Ben and Miss Begley into ever deeper commitments, and hammers home a harsh lesson of war: the neutrality of one's country doesn't secure the neutrality of one's soul.

Описание: "My wooing began in passion, was defined by violence and circumscribed by land; all these elements molded my soul." So writes Charles O'Brien, the unforgettable hero of bestselling author Frank Delaney's extraordinary novel--a sweeping epic of obsession, profound devotion, and compelling history involving a turbulent era that would shape modern Ireland. Born into a respected Irish-Anglo family in 1860, Charles loves his native land and its long-suffering but irrepressible people. As a healer, he travels the countryside dispensing traditional cures while soaking up stories and legends of bygone times-and witnessing the painful, often violent birth of land-reform measures destined to lead to Irish independence. At the age of forty, summoned to Paris to treat his dying countryman-the infamous Oscar Wilde-Charles experiences the fateful moment of his life. In a chance encounter with a beautiful and determined young Englishwoman, eighteen-year-old April Burke, he is instantly and passionately smitten-but callously rejected. Vowing to improve himself, Charles returns to Ireland, where he undertakes the preservation of the great and abandoned estate of Tipperary, in whose shadow he has lived his whole life-and which, he discovers, may belong to April and her father. As Charles pursues his obsession, he writes the "History" of his own life and country. While doing so, he meets the great figures of the day, including Charles Parnell, William Butler Yeats, and George Bernard Shaw. And he also falls victim to less well-known characters-who prove far more dangerous. Tipperary also features a second "historian: " a present-day commentator, a retired and obscure history teacher who suddenly discovers that he has much at stake in the telling of Charles's story. In this gloriously absorbing and utterly satisfying novel, a man's passion for the woman he loves is twinned with his country's emergence as a nation. With storytelling as sweeping and dramatic as the land itself, myth, fact, and fiction are all woven together with the power of the great nineteenth-century novelists. Tipperary once again proves Frank Delaney's unrivaled mastery at bringing Irish history to life. Praise for Tipperary "The narrative moves swiftly and surely. . . . A sort of Irish Gone With the Wind, marked by sly humor, historical awareness and plenty of staying power."--Kirkus Reviews
"Another meticulously researched journey...Delaney's careful scholarship and compelling storytelling bring it uniquely alive. Highly recommended."--Library Journal (starred)
