    "Redemption Falls" is like a huge war painting, full of movement, of characters, of different episodes happening at the same time on the same canvas. If you look at it for a short moment and from afar you won't be able to understand what's happening. But if you pause a moment and get closer, you'll get the picture/5(30). Redemption Falls is a tale of war and forgiveness, of strangers in a strange land, of love put to the ultimate test. Packed with music, balladry, poetry and storytelling, this is a riveting tale of urgent contemporary resonance, from the author of the internationally best-selling Star of the Sea/5(46).

There are bits of this novel which shine, the parts in which O'Connor really 4/5.
