On Canaan’s Side by Sebastian Barry


“A saga told in the first person narrative. This is Lilly’s story.
Longlisted for the Booker.
Lilly is now an old women, this novel begins in Ireland and political troubles take her and her lover fleeing to America.
We follow her through her life, friends, relationships and family. But this is a lot more than some old saga, lovely prose.
