Synopses & Reviews
For third-generation Irish-American Sean Corrigan, the past is whatever happened yesterday. Then, on his 21st birthday, his father gives him a musty leather-bound journal that changes his life. Written by his uncle, Michael, a man Sean never even knew existed, it draws Sean into a hunt for the truth. Did Michael, a former NYPD detective, really kill a black civil rights worker? When he fled the United States to hide in Ireland, why was he killed by the British? Who is the beautiful, auburn-haired Kate, and why does Sean feel so strongly that he remembers her?
Determined to solve the mystery of his uncles murder, Sean travels to Ireland, where he is caught up in the lives of people who not only know about Michael but have a score to settle. As his connection to his uncle grows stronger, Sean realizes that the journal also carries the story of his own life—his past as well as his future.
“A fresh and fascinating take on an absorbing concoction of myth, belief, memory, identity, reincarnation, and the lasting power of love.”
—Publishers Weekly Durham Herald-Sun
“A satisfying read about a culture that still believes strongly in the cycles of lives and loves and the inevitable repetition of political and religious intolerance. Recommended for Irish fiction fans.”
“Winding inward and outward like the Celtic knotted roads and stories and layers of lives reincarnated, Until the Next Time is a great escape that also makes you want to follow a road to its origin, and perhaps your own.”
In this sweeping, suspenseful debut novel set in Ireland, a young man tries to solve the mystery of his uncles murder and finds the woman he is fated to love forever.
