    "On an autumn day in 1952, an elderly Irish actress makes her way through the windblown streets of London to a job at the BBC. Last night's hurricane has wreaked havoc, raising memories of blackout and blitz. Recollections of Broadway seem to walk with her through bomb-blasted squares. Scenes from a doomed courtship are rehearsed in her mind once again: it's one of those October days when the past comes back. Moving between a sepia-tinted Edwardian Dublin and a teeming Lower East Side of Manhattan in the 1920s, from hunger in London's West End to the elegant theatres of San Francisco, this is a love story, a tale ofjourneys, and a powerful meditation on the hope to be found in the everyday. Loosely based on real events in the lives of the greatest Irish playwright of the twentieth century and the younger woman who was his fiancee at the time of his tragically early death, Ghost Light is an exhilarating, passionate and uplifting adventure in storytelling from the award-winning author of tar of the Sea and Redemption Falls."
