Description

In this sweeping and powerful epic the journey begins in the "terrible beauty" of Northern Ireland during a time when conflict reigns and no one is spared from tragedy and sorrow, the time known as The Troubles.

It is the spring of 1968 in Belfast and James Kirkpatrick has just lost his father under suspicious circumstances, Casey Riordan is released from prison after five years and Pamela O'Flaherty has crossed an ocean and a lifetime of memories to find the man she fell in love with as a little girl. All three lives are on a collision course with each other against the backdrop of the burgeoning civil rights movement and a nation on the brink of revolution.

They come from disparate backgrounds - Jamie a wealthy aristocrat whose life is like an imperfect but multi-faceted jewel-brilliant, flawed and with a glitter that is designed to distract the observer. Casey, a card-carrying member of the Irish Republican Army, who must face the fact that five years away has left him a stranger, a misfit in his own neighborhood where not everyone is sympathetic to a convicted rebel. Pamela, who has come to Ireland in search of a memory and a man who may not have existed in the first place.

Through it all runs the ribbon of a love story: love of country, the beginning love of two people unable to resist the pull of each other regardless of the cost to themselves and those around them, and the selfless love of one man who no longer believes himself capable of such emotion.

It is an electrifying tale of a people divided by religion and politics, a tale of love and danger, of triumph and tragedy. Ultimately it is the story of that "terrible beauty" herself - Ireland - and how nation is bound to one's identity, woven into the weft of all we become.

Awesome book and audio!

This is the first book in Cindy's series and it is wonderful! The writing is brought to life by Gary in such a passionate, intriguing manner that you'll fall in love with the characters and with Ireland. Cindy's words can bring me to tears and make me laugh out loud and Gary's voice leaves an emotional, indelible mark on my heart. I strongly recommend Cindy's books and the best palce to start is with Exit Unicorns.

Where to begin...

The story begins in the spring of 1968 in Belfast, Ireland, right at the start of a 3-decade long conflict in Northern Ireland between the Catholics and the Protestants. The starring characters of this phenomenal series are James Kirkpatrick, Pamela O’Flaherty, Casey Riordan, Patrick Riordan, and a host of very memorable characters that you will not soon forget.

The Troubles started before I was born, so I was never aware of Ireland’s bloody past. Though The Troubles is but a small glimpse into a multi century-old conflict between the British and the Irish. This series has taught me so much history; it has taught me about passion; it has taught me about strength, and most of all it has taught me about true and passionate love for one’s country. You will laugh, you will cry, you will get angry and you will feel joy, happiness and so much sorrow… this book has all the feels.

Cindy writes like no other author I have read. She is a master storyteller. She writes in a way that transports you into the story through beautifully written prose. I could feel and see everything she described as if I was there.

I originally read Exit Unicorns in 2014 and again when the audiobook came out in 2017.

I didn’t think I could love a story any more than I already did, but it is so very possible. The story, the characters, and history come together vividly and give the reader a deeper, more personal experience. The narrator, Gary Furlong, did an excellent job of bringing each character to life, though Pamela was not all that I hoped for, she has since grown on me. Gary absolutely makes up for it through all the other characters, though. Some characters were so spot-on in my mind it was scary, and just left me mind-blown. You know a narrator has done his job well when you are laughing out loud, and your kid looks at you oddly!

If you have a passion for all things Irish, then this is a series you can not afford to miss out on! It is bloody brilliant!


This is a book trailer that I made for Cindy with her permission.
Enjoy!
