Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Covering the eighty-plus years in the life of Minnie O'Brien, a woman bound to take her place in Irish literature next to Joyce's Molly Bloom, The Banyan Tree is a saga of rural Ireland spanning the twentieth century. In richly layered prose, Nolan lovingly details the life and times of a spirited woman who struggles to keep the five fields left to her by her husband for the day when her prodigal younger son, who is wandering the world, will surely return to claim them. Colorful, feisty, filled with love and humor, The Banyan Tree is truly a virtuoso debut novel.
