THE IRISH CONNECTION explores the Potato Famine of the 1800s from a unique perspective—one that hasn't been told in story form, since most people aren't aware that many who fled Ireland to escape starvation and death sought refuge in the slave scourged Caribbean. The novel portrays the rich, devastating, and compelling histories of both settings, chronicling the complex relationships between oppressors and the oppressed while refusing to characterize those who endured colonialism and slavery as passive victims.

The year is 1847, and a farmer devastated by the famine in Ireland is working in a soup kitchen serving the sick and starving. When Sean O'Sullivan overhears British landlords blaming the poor for “breeding like rabbits” as well as their plans to “ship them off to Canada, America, or the Caribbean,” he hits his breaking point. The farmer attempts to leave the darkness behind by escaping on a hurricane-battered cargo ship to the Caribbean. But life away from Ireland is also bleak, and his best friend is brutally murdered by a pirate.

After O'Sullivan exacts revenge on the pirate, he’s employed by one of the cruelest British planters in Jamaica, who beats and tortures his slaves. Britain eventually abolishes slavery and pays millions of pounds to planters, but Africans, battered and maimed to perform forced labor, get nothing. As rebellion erupts and activists are lynched, O'Sullivan plots to convert two abandoned plantations into a thriving farming community owned by his ex-slaves. But more uprisings take place and a well-respected human rights activist arrives on the scene; his name is Marcus Garvey.
