A Thousand Moons by Sebastian Barry

From the Costa Book of the Year-winning author of Days Without End

Even when you come out of bloodshed and disaster in the end you have got to learn to live…

Winona is a young Lakota orphan adopted by former soldiers Thomas McNulty and John Cole.  Living with Thomas and John on the farm they work in 1870s Tennessee, she is educated and loved, forging a life for herself beyond the violence and dispossession of her past.  But the fragile harmony of her unlikely family unit, in the aftermath of the Civil War, is soon threatened by a further traumatic event, one which Winona struggles to confront, let alone understand.

Told in Sebastian Barry’s rare and masterly prose, A Thousand Moons is a powerful, moving study of one woman’s journey, of her determination to write her own future, and of the enduring human capacity for love.

Peer & Press Reviews

Barry is an extraordinary descriptive writer…  There’s a quiet glow of brightness – here are unexpected stories of love and respect.  But, ultimately, theirs is a world “so knotted with evil that good could only hope to unknot a tiny few threads of it’.

rancesca Carington, Sunday Telegraphl

Strange and beautiful… spine-tingling.

Mail on Sunday

A richly poetic read.  Barry is concerned again with shifting sexual, personal and political boundaries, with the effects of tumultuous times – of rivalry, lawlessness and fissure – on individuals, families and communities, and with interactions between those on opposite sides of a political debate.

Lucy Atkins, Sunday Times
