Not a mystery I would recommend. While there are flashes of well written prose, particularly regarding Pius Mulvey, the novel is often disjointed. Just when I thought the author was hitting his stride I would find myself asking what's this? I felt that the author couldn't decide what was important to share with the reader. I skimmed the last chapters. The book does a fair task of informing the reader about what it must have been like to travel from Ireland to New York in a overcrowded ship and the emotions that break out as a result. Enough said!
