In August of 1998, a terrorist bombing in the center of Omagh, Northern Ireland, killed 28 people. Author Don Snyder traveled to Omagh a few days later, and his observations of the tragedy’s aftermath inspired a novel. In his story, the bombing becomes the centerpiece of a story about the relationship between an American woman and a British soldier.
