It is almost too late for the Donohoe family to learn about their past. The mystery is that so few stories have survived. They had been uprooted suddenly, left Ireland, and survived the harrowing journey to Canada. Later some of them would settle in the States. It is a single page from an old journal that opens a door for the Donohoe descendants, and the path ahead leads to more than an understanding of the family’s past. What they feel is a longing for home. This longing is what they share with those who came before, share in more ways than they can imagine. Purchase novel.
