When I was looking for novels to review around St. Patrick’s Day, Peter Troy’s May the Road Rise Up to Meet You sounded like just the thing. What could be more Irish than a novel named for an Irish Blessing? As it turns out it is very Irish but it’s a lot more than that. I love how it interweaves the struggles of three marginalized immigrant populations together, some free and some not, as seen through the eyes of four very different people in the days before, during, and after the Civil War.
