‘A page-turner with heart and soul.’
‘Thrilling and enchanting in equal measure.’

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

Winona – a young Lakota orphan adopted by former soldiers Thomas McNulty and John Cole in the aftermath of the American Civil War – is employed by the lawyer Briscoe in the nearby town of Paris, Tennessee, and she tries to forge a life for herself beyond the violence and dispossession of her past. But the fragile harmony of her new life 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.
