In the Shadow of the Ombú Tree

This is a tender tale, told in beautiful, unforced prose which vividly evokes the dirt, hardship and beauty of Uruguay. There is also occasional gentle humour. The author in reality is writing about his great-grandparents; the result is a beautiful work of fiction from a vivid imagination."

"...a fine, historical novel that blends in high adventure, love, tenderness, endurance, and that longing to see faraway places that seems always to have gripped the Irish down through the centuries. Salutations to Mr Ryan on a very fine achievement indeed."
