Dunn begins with Ireland's pre-Famine social and political landscape as context for the Ballykilcline strike. The tenants had rented earlier from the Mahons of Strokestown, whose former property now houses Ireland's Famine Museum. In 1847, landlord Denis Mahon evicted and sent nearly a thousand tenants to Quebec, where half died before or just after reaching the Grosse Ile quarantine station. Mahon was gunned down months later. His murder provoked an international controversy involving the Vatican. An early suspect in the case was a man from Ballykilcline.
In the United States, many of the immigrants resettled in clusters in several locations, including Vermont, Illinois, Iowa, Maryland, and New York. In Vermont they found jobs in the marble quarries, but some of them lost their homes again in quarry labor actions after 1859. Others prospered in their new lives. A number of Ballykilcline families who stopped in Rutland later moved west; one had a son kidnapped by Indians in Minnesota. Readers who have Irish Famine roots will gain a sense of their own "back story" from this account of Ireland and the native Irish, and scholars in the field of immigration studies will find it particularly useful.
What authors have said about Mary Lee's previous books
I am happy to say I find a simplicity, a beauty, a tenderness which is so lacking today and which is not old-fashioned, as some may think, but perpetually new and refreshing, inspiring to young and old alike. - Henry Miller
Tender Bough is beautiful. There's the freshness I mean, the child's wild eye. (and not only beautiful, but successful, man), - Ben Massalink
The Guest of Tyn-y-Coedcae
Because of the directness and simplicity, the wistfulness which underlies the moods touches one more deeply than the louder wail of sorrow in some of the screaming poets. It is a poetry of moods, shared with gentleness and precision of color and the feelings issued from human experience. One feels with her. - Anais Nn
