Author of the bestselling Let the Great World Spin, Colum McCann weaves three seemingly disparate stories into one:  the visit of Frederick Douglass to Ireland in 1845 where he sees the famine firsthand and meets a young Irish girl who flees her homeland for America; the flight across the Atlantic by two World War I veterans in 1919; and the trials of former Senator George Mitchell, as he tries to broker an Irish peace in 1998.  This book is a brilliant combination of fact and fiction written by a master craftsman.
