Beschreibung1865. The American Civil War is ending. Eighteen years after the famine ship Star of the Sea docked at New York, the daughter of two of her passengers sets out from Baton Rouge, Louisiana, on a walk across a devastated America. Eliza Duane Mooney is searching for a young boy she has not seen in four years, one of the hundred thousand children drawn into the war. His fate has been mysterious and will prove extraordinary. Packed with music, balladry, poetry and storytelling, this is a riveting historical novel of urgent contemporary resonance. A tale of hatreds and mercies, of balladry and the blues, of war and peace and the healing power of forgiveness, REDEMPTION FALLS is an epic novel and an unforgettable love story, from the author of international best-seller Star of the Sea.
