The River Capture
Luke O'Brien has retreated from the city to live a quiet life on his family land situated at the bend of the River Sullane. Surrounded by the Irish countryside and alone in the crumbling house, he longs for a return to his family's heyday. He has given up on love and relationships and instead turned to books for solace.
One morning a young woman arrives at his door. Her appearance could have profound consequences for him and his family. But will he let her into his closed life?
In a novel that pays glorious homage to Joyce, The River Capture tells of one man's descent into near madness, and the possibility of rescue. This is a novel about love, loyalty and the raging forces of nature. More than anything, it is a book about the life of the mind and the redemptive powers of art.
