Star Of The Sea by Joseph O'Connor


In the bitter winter of 1847, from an Ireland torn by injustice and natural disaster, the Star of the Sea sets sail for New York.

On board are hundreds of fleeing refugees. Among them are a maidservant with a devastating secret, bankrupt Lord Merridith and his family, an aspiring novelist and a maker of revolutionary ballads, all braving the Atlantic in search of a new home. Each is connected more deeply than they can possibly know.

But a camouflaged killer is stalking the decks, hungry for the vengeance that will bring absolution.


'A page-turner of a masterpiece. Don't miss it.' Daily Mail 

'Stunningly accomplished.' Guardian 

'A triumph...A spectacular raises the bar for contemporary Irish fiction.' Sunday Times

'A terrific story... A stealthily gripping narrative.' Daily Telegraph

'This is Joseph O'Connor's best book. It is shocking, hilarious, beautifully written, and very, very clever.' Roddy Doyle

'His most substantial and impressive novel to date. Sad and funny, Star of the Sea tacks and veers in surprising directions, but follows a subtly plotted course to its final satisfying landfall.' Irish Times

'A masterful storyteller... A thrilling tale...O'Connor writes with nothing less than incandescent passion... Unfailingly gripping.' The Times
