"This big tale takes us from the world of the Irish Famine to the American Civil War--a wonderful family saga of poignant history, thrilling action, and romance. But what I like best of all is the way Peter Troy writes it: This book is rich, it's warm, it's got heart and it's got guts. I highly recommend it." Edward Rutherfurd, author of New York: The Novel and The Rebels of Ireland
"Peter Troy weaves an epic tale of triumph and sorrow in the years before and during the war around the lives and voices of four individuals struggling to survive a world packed with noble hopes and chaotic events. Through the lives of Ethan, Marcella, Mary, and Micah, Troy reminds us again and again why the American Civil War remains the single most important moment in our history. Beautifully told, Troy has given us a story that will be with me for many years to come." Robert Hicks, author of The Widow of the South and A Separate Country
"May the road rise up to meet you is a generous and sweeping Civil War saga about Southern slaves and newly arrived immigrants linked by a shared desire for abolition and freedom. A hopeful, magnanimous depiction of America at its most vulnerable." Robin Oliveira, author of My Name is Mary Sutter
