This first collection of poems and photographs captures, not only the beauty of Ireland with its mountains, streams and scenic coastline, but the tragic violence and personal loss, from The Troubles, that haunts the people of Northern Ireland and which led the author and his wife to choose exile and the challenges of raising a family in a new land.

From the Author:

In its broadest sense, exile has more to do with an involuntary state of mind than with one's physical happenstance. We can be exiles in our own land. Exile touches on the deepest emotions experienced by those who are separated, for whatever reason, from the people, places and things they love the most. It is characterized often by a deep hunger for the past, a longing that, at times, is almost too much to bear. In such a context, exile places a premium on memory. Memories are a lifeline between a definitive past and an uncertain future.

About the Author:

James B. Johnston was born in Belfast, Northern Ireland. He was educated at Grosvenor High School in Belfast and Trinity College in Dublin. He immigrated to Canada in 1974 and currently resides with his wife in Knoxville, Tennessee.
