"Shannon" tells the story of Robert Shannon, an American hero of World War I who seeks to rid himself of shell shock through the pursuit of his roots in Ireland. A chaplain who has seen the horrors of war and scandal in his home diocese of Boston, Shannon is sent to Ireland to remember and to forget.

While traipsing up and down the length of the Shannon River, Robert Shannon meets people from his past as well as ordinary who give the reader a taste of Irish life. Set in the time of the Irish Civil War, it provides a bit of Irish history in addition to the fictional sojourn. The book is livened by a bit of love and a developing relationship between two good people.

At times I thought that this journey was detouring into some issues that I prefer not to afford the dignity of recognition, but author Frank Delaney quickly gets back on the road of his story. Overall it is a good book, more a tale than a taste of Ireland, but definitely a worthwhile read.
