A Ghost Upon Your Path, Paperback / softback Book

A Ghost Upon Your Path Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback

Description

We all have a need to belong, to have a place and people we feel tied to: our family, our house, our hometown, our nation.

Ever since he first visited Ireland with his family twenty years ago, John McCarthy has felt a strong affinity with its people and landscape.

Yet in spite of his Irish name, he never thought of himself as remotely Irish. When McCarthy sets up home in a wild and isolated corner of County Kerry where his ancestors were living a thousand years before, he realises that he is about to undertake not only a journey into that small rural community but also into his own history and his family.

What he discovers there reveals a curious sense of belonging to a place he has never before lived in and peels back the emotional layers of his own fractured past.
