On February 2, 2002, the Seanachais (Gallic for storyteller) Steenie O’Shea of Galway, Ireland, discloses to her young niece, Áine, the mysterious family secret that occurred in 1977. The narrator describes Steenie’s amnesia and its effect on author, Maeve McCourt, in Fountain Hills, Arizona. What is the source of identical books created by the two storytellers, an ocean apart, the same year? Maeve travels to Galway, meets the O’Shea bookshop clan and enters into the strange evolutionary transformation of the Blues. Travel with the O’Shea’s from the Sligo of W.B. Yeats down the coast of Galway Bay to The Burren as the venture becomes more and more convoluted, entangled with a 350,000 year-old mystery.
