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*A searing collection of tales . . . Taylor displays his signature empathy for a wide variety of characters trapped on either side or in the middle of the conflict. - Booklist on Only Wounded "This gripping thriller is about love and the Troubles - the love of a man and woman for each other, for freedom, and for Ireland. An engrossing tale nicely balancing war and peace." - Kirkus Reviews on Now and in the Hour of Our Death
