On Canaan's Side - Sebastian Barry - A Short Summary & Review

A short summary of the book On Canaan's Side:

The tale of an Irish girl in America.

My favorite Sebastian Berry Quote from the book:

"Tears have a better character cried alone."

Questions to ponder while reading On Canaan's Side:

Would you have been able to forgive?

Would you have felt left behind?

My review of On Canaan's Side:

The violence of Ireland's division stuns me every time I read about it.

Beautiful, bittersweet story.
