We’re delighted to announce the release of Cast a New Shadow, by Brendan Moore.
On the eve of August 5th 1958, in Louisburgh, County Mayo, Mary Stenson told her only son that their farm was soon to be lost. If they could not raise £3,000 before 23rd of December, their link with the land would be broken forever. Like many young men and women before and after, Seamus took the boat to England to fulfil a promise and entered the world of the Kilburn Navvies. What follows is a story of hard times and violence, of lies, murder and the emergence of family secrets that will reshape their lives for all time.
