A Whisper from Oblivion by Declan O'Rourke 

The follow-up to The Pawnbroker’s Reward, his bestselling 2021 novel, Declan O’Rourke’s second instalment sees the inhabitants of Macroom and its surroundings landed squarely into the eye of the storm that is 1847, during Ireland’s Great Famine.

After the landslide of their descent through 1846, Pádraig and Cáit Ua Buachalla awaken on the outskirts of Macroom to a new year fraught with the worst of weather, worse luck and a new level of problems that compound their desperate struggle to survive. In the heart of town, in the absence of her husband the pawnbroker, Paulellen Creed struggles to stay afloat.

Follow this heart-wrenching story of tragedy and human beauty as, through the voices of Macroom in 1847, we hear a whisper from oblivion.

About the Author

Declan O’Rourke’s award-winning album Chronicles of the Great Irish Famine illuminated an extraordinary series of eye-witness accounts, including the song ‘Poor Boy’s Shoes’, the inspiration for this trilogy. The Pawnbroker’s Reward was published to critical acclaim in 2021, and the final book will be published in 2024.
