Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Wild Geese, the sequel to the Governor General’s Award winning novel Greener Grass, follows Kit Byrne and her friend Mick O’Toole after fleeing famine ravaged Ireland. Across the  Atlantic a notorious “coffin ship”, through quarantine, and into the heart of North America, the two displaced teenagers endure storms, epidemics, and discrimination. Desperate to find her family in the New World, Kit is willing to sacrifice everything, even her love for Mick, to reunite the remaining orphaned Byrnes. Jack and Annie are out there somewhere and Kit will not stop searching until she finds them, until her family is together again.
 
The original Wild Geese were Irish soldiers fighting outside of Ireland, but the term later came to encompass all expatriate Irish. People fighting for survival a long, long way from home. People like Kit. This is her Wild Geese story.
