Farewell Forever

If you prefer historical realism to fairies and vampires, check out John Malone's haunting new novel "Farewell Forever." Set in the 1830s, the book follows a young Cavan couple who fall in love. They leave Ireland just before the Famine strikes, making their way through Dublin, New York, Philly and other points before settling in Pennsylvania. The novel is partially based on the life of Malone's great-great-grandfather. In this brief but compelling novel, Malone does a fine job of making the reader feel as if he is being taken back in time. ($17 / 145 pages / Trafford)
