This wonderful novel takes place in Ireland. The book is brand new and still in it's original publisher's shrinkwrap. This is a story about children but it is written for adults. This is a difficult task for any writer as he must comprehend the minds of children but make his novel interesting and believable for the adult reader. The task becomes doubly hard when the author decides to eliminate the sensational subjects that we find in the news today, such as child abuse and the like. This most compelling novel was the 1993 winner of the Booker McConnell Prize which is the most prestigious liter... View more info

Here is the book that won the Pulitzer Prize for Literature in 2002. Richard Russo, from his first book "Mohawk", up to the present time, has clearly demonstrated his empathy with the Human Tragicomedy. With Empire Falls, a stunning novel, he extends even further his claims on the blue-collar heart of the country. This is the story of Dexter County, Maine, and specifically the town of Empire Falls. Empire Falls has been in decline for decades and has lost just about all of its businesses. The working classes, meanwhile, continue to attempt to eke out a living with what is left. This st...

When this novel was published anonymously in 1814, it created great interest among readers who sought to discover the author. Scott claimed that he published the book this way in order to avoid 'political discussion'. Because the book was published only 60 years after the invasion of Prince Charlie and because the dark and bloody days of 1745 still rankled in the minds of many living people. This book is a historical romance and is the first book in what is known as the Waverly Novels. There were eventually 48 novels in the series including 'Ivanhoe'.
