Sinopsis:

Apriceless Irish gift. A Storied Past. A promising future. Frank McGrath is a mischievous and outspoken teenager who finds trouble constantly nipping at his heels. After a particularly unpleasant episode, his cantankerous, blue collar father punishes Frank by forcing him to drive his elderly grandfather, Liam O'Conlan, to his childhood home in eastern Iowa. In His twilight years Liam is compelled to face a sordid past and the demons that haunt him. Frank helps Liam lay his torment to rest on the long road trip across Iowa. Along the way, and much to his surprise, Frank learns that his grandfather is a Seanachie - an Irishman given the gift of storytelling to pass on Ireland's lore and history. Frank and Liam's lives are transformed forever when, by a Dickensian twist, they end up in Ireland in the year 1846 during the potato famine. "The Seanachie" is the tale of one family's immigration from Ireland to America in the mid-1800s. And the story is told as only a Seanachie can, by an author who himself is a displaced Seanachie. So hold on to your Shelaighly and prepare for a journey that will move you from the depths of despair and sorrow to the heights of human triumph and joy!

About the Author:

Bob Huerter has spent over a decade pursuing his passion for the Irish, their storied history, and their immigration to America during the potato famine. During his extensive research, Huerter spent time in Ireland studying her culture and people and listening to the tales of the Seanachies, Ireland's storytellers and history keepers. The result is his debut novel, "The Seanachie." Huerter is an award-winning short story writer and is currently finishing up his second novel.
