We'll discuss Days Without End by Sebastian Barry. A survivor of Ireland's Great Famine and a recent immigrant to the United States, a 17-year-old joins the U.S. Army in 1851 with his best friend and fellow orphan. Sent first to the Great Plains to butcher the Sioux, and later, to the battlefields of the Civil War, the young carry out their orders despite their horror of the carnage. Meanwhile, they become lovers and must find a way to build a life together in a society that doesn't recognize or understand romantic relationships between men. Copies of the book are available at the library.
