When her husband comes back from the dead, Mrs. Fury plans a voyage
Dennis Fury was too old to return to sea. Nearing seventy, his sailing days long behind him, he should have stayed home—but Britain was at war, and his family needed the money. When his ship was reported lost, his wife, the stalwart Mrs. Fury, staggered into St. Stephen’s Hospice, prepared to die. Twelve months later, as she clings to life, a shipwrecked old man appears near the docks, feeble, sick, and too drunk to know his own name. He has crossed half the planet to return home, but Dennis Fury will find that there is no home waiting for him.
His return is enough to rouse Mrs. Fury from her deathbed. With her last burst of life, she wants to fulfill a dream she gave up on long ago and return with her husband to Ireland. The sea may stand in their way, but the Furys have never hesitated to cross an ocean.
Winter Song is the fourth book of James Hanley’s acclaimed Furys Saga.
