Publisher Description

A boy’s life from Ireland to Alcatraz “makes for compulsive reading” in this New York Times bestselling historical novel by the author of Sold on a Monday (Publishers Weekly).
 
Alcatraz, 1937. A prison guard's only daughter—one of the youngest civilians who lives on the island—has gone missing. Tending the warden's greenhouse, convicted bank robber Tommy Capello waits anxiously. Only he knows the truth about the little girl's whereabouts, and that both of their lives depend on what happens next.

Almost two decades earlier and thousands of miles away, a young boy named Shanley Keagan ekes out a living as an aspiring vaudevillian in Dublin pubs. Talented and shrewd, Shan dreams of finding his real father in America. But when he finally crosses the Atlantic, tragedy strikes, and Shan must forge a new life in a volatile and foreign world.

Skillfully weaving these two stories, acclaimed author Kristina McMorris delivers a compelling novel that moves from Ireland to New York to San Francisco Bay. As her finely crafted characters discover the true nature of loyalty, sacrifice, and betrayal, they are forced to confront the lies we tell—and believe—in order to survive.
