Publisher's Summary

Having signed up for the US Army in the 1850s, aged barely 17, Thomas McNulty and his brother-in-arms, John Cole, go on to fight in the Indian wars and ultimately the Civil War. Orphans of terrible hardships themselves, despite the horrors they both see and are complicit in, they find these days to be vivid.

Both an intensely poignant story of two men and the lives they are dealt and a fresh look at some of the most fateful years in America's past.

What the Critics Say

"[Barry's] words have a stony allure of the Irish poets and the lyrical pull of an epic storyteller." (The Boston Globe)

"Sebastian Barry's handling of voice and cadence is masterly. His fictional universe is filled with life, quiet truth, and exquisite intimacy." (Colm Tóibín, author of the Costa Novel Award-winning Brooklyn)

    "What a wonderful book."

    Sebastián Barry at his best - an interesting story filled with the most vivid descriptions bringing the scenes to life, well read and the story is a mixture of harsh realities of war and the love between the main characters.
    I really enjoyed this book and could listen to it again.
