Irish Roots: Finding the O’Sullivans is the author’s story of connecting with the heritage of her great grandparents who emigrated from Ireland in 1863, using the surname of Sullivan in America. The connection to Ireland had broken over the decades. Even though research yielded no known relatives, she went to Ireland in 1995. There, not only did she find O’Sullivans, but found them on the land her great grandparents left. The author presents her story in dual format: her first person story and a fictionalized narrative in her ancestors’ voices.
