Book Overview
In Your Own Ones, S le Post's poetic, storytelling voice, courage to write about big issues, great heart, and real personal vision Frank Howard Mosher], shape this lyrical, visionary novel of one woman's transcendental journey back to the old country, now lost in the unsustainable ways of the new. For wild salmon conservationist, ine O'Connor, the journey of the wild salmon charts the route of her own journey back --to the rivers of her birth on Celtic Dingle Peninsula--to continue a thousand year family tradition of protecting the land and sea. When the economic tide suddenly turns in Ireland, ine launches a Celtic Roots Campaign --a traditional & local foods initiative--through which she re-casts the Joycean ' nightmare ' of Irish history into a sustainable dream for the country's future. The preservationist passion that flows through Your Own Ones --reminiscent of Barbara Kingsolver, with echoes of the warmth and humor of Maeve Binchy Joyce Mandeville , Orange Prize nominee ]-- will appeal to a wide range of readers, both caretakers of the land and of the heart. Come Away, (in the words of W.B. Yeats), to the waters & the wild of Your Own Ones --an Irish State of Wonder.
