Publisher's Summary

1919. Emily Ehrlich watches as two young airmen pilot the very first non-stop transatlantic flight. 1998. Senator George Mitchell criss-crosses the ocean in search of Irish peace. How many more tragedies must there be before an agreement can be reached? 1845. Frederick Douglass, a black American slave, lands in Ireland to champion ideas of democracy and freedom, only to find a famine unfurling at his feet.
TransAtlantic intricately weaves together personal stories to explore the tangled skein of connections that make up our lives.
