1865. The American Civil War is ending. Eighteen years after the famine ship Star of the Sea docked at New York, the daughter of two of her passengers sets out from Baton Rouge, Louisiana, on a walk across a devastated America. Eliza Duane Mooney is searching for a youngster she has not seen in four years, one of the hundred thousand children drawn into the war. His fate has been mysterious and will prove extraordinary. It's a walk that will have consequences for many seemingly unconnected survivors: a love-struck cartographer, a beautiful Latina poetess, rebel guerrilla Johnny Thunders, runaway slave Elizabeth Longstreet and the mercurial revolutionary Giacomo O'Keeffe, who commanded a brigade of Irish immigrants in the Union Army and is now Governor of a western wilderness where nothing is as it seems. Redemption Falls is a tale of war and forgiveness, of strangers in a strange land, of love put to the ultimate test. Packed with music, balladry, poetry and storytelling, this is a riveting tale of urgent contemporary resonance, from the author of the internationally best-selling Star of the Sea.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Canadian actor Kerry Shale...throws himself into his role as storyteller and assumes the voices of the characters with aplomb. His credible range of accents includes a Louisiana drawl, Dublin brogue and the clipped tones of an English-educated Irish nationalist." * FT Magazine *
"Kerry Shale's delivery is polished and believable, a necessary requirement for a story immersed in historical context and built on devastating authenticity." * Observer *
"Narrated by Kerry Shale, this is storytelling at its best." * Express *
"With Kerry Shale's hard-bitten, much-travelled narrative voice we get a reading well up to the task ... pleasantly dreamy..." * Scotsman *
"The author paints a vivid picture of the lawlessness of the times, the harshness of lives lived on the edge of poverty, and the brutality of revenge." * New Books *
