A Thousand Moons by Sebastian Barry



ISBN: 9780571333370 Category: Tags: ,


From the Costa Book of the Year-winning author of Days Without End Even when you come out of bloodshed and disaster in the end you have got to learn to live. Winona is a young Lakota orphan adopted by former soldiers Thomas McNulty and John Cole. Living with Thomas and John on the farm they work in 1870s Tennessee she is educated and loved forging a life for herself beyond the violence and dispossession of her past. But the fragile harmony of her unlikely family unit in the aftermath of the Civil War is soon threatened by a further traumatic event one which Winona struggles to confront let alone understand. Told in Sebastian Barry’s rare and masterly prose A Thousand Moons is a powerful moving study of one woman’s journey of her determination to write her own future and of the enduring human capacity for love. ‘Nobody writes like nobody takes lyrical risks like nobody pushes the language and the heart and the two together quite like Sebastian Barry does.’ ALI SMITH
