Inspired by the centenary of the Great Flu of 1918 and finished before the current pandemic, my new novel The Pull of the Stars came out worldwide in July 2020 and was an immediate bestseller in Canada, Ireland, the UK and the US; it was shortlisted for Easons Irish Novel of the Year and a Goodreads Choice Award for historical fiction, and longlisted for Canada's Giller Prize. The Pull of the Stars is a story of everyday heroism in a tiny maternity quarantine ward where a nurse midwife, a doctor and a volunteer helper battle to save their patients.
