Additional Notes

From The Publisher*Ireland, home of legendary poets and storytellers, has been wracked by bloody sectarian violence over the last quarter century. Bombs and guns were, and once again are, the primary negotiation tools used by Catholic and Protestant extremists in the conflict surrounding the sovereignty of Northern Ireland - the six counties known as Ulster. Only Wounded centers on the hopes and despairs of everyday life during these new Troubles. New York Times bestselling author Patrick Taylor traces an intricate narrative path through Ulster, detailing sensitive, unbiased portraits of the ordinary - and not so ordinary - people caught in the partisan brutality of Northern Ireland.
Review Quote*Patrick Taylor has become probably the most popular Irish-Canadian writer of all time. - The Globe and Mail " Pray for Us Sinners is written with heartfelt urgency to explain Ulster rather than demonize the place and the population. A deeply felt thriller and a very valuable one." - The Globe and Mail "Nails the chips-and-guns-with-everything atmosphere of violence in mid-1970s Ulster." - Quill & Quire on Pray for Us Sinners "Taylor masterfully charts the small victories and defeats of Irish village life." - Irish America magazine "Taylor . . . captivates and entertains from the first word." - Publishers Weekly
