A Whisper from Oblivion Summary

A Whisper from Oblivion by Declan O'Rourke

The follow-up to The Pawnbroker's Reward, his bestselling 2021 novel, Declan O'Rourke's second instalment sees the inhabitants of Macroom and its surroundings landed squarely into the eye of the storm that is 1847, during Ireland's Great Famine.

After the landslide of their descent through 1846, Padraig and Cait Ua Buachalla awaken on the outskirts of Macroom to a new year fraught with the worst of weather, worse luck and a new level of problems that compound their desperate struggle to survive. In the heart of town, in the absence of her husband the pawnbroker, Paulellen Creed struggles to stay afloat.

Follow this heart-wrenching story of tragedy and human beauty as, through the voices of Macroom in 1847, we hear a whisper from oblivion.
