I read first "The Green Years" and "Shannon's Way" is the same character. Beautiful books!

Book was really boring and poorly written.

Experimental pathologist Dr Robert Shannon is the perfect depiction of an isolated scientist on the brink of a new discovery. Focused and ornery, Shannon goes deeper into his one-room living quarters and hidden laboratory on what should be referred to as an asylum. His research entrails only him and that pursuit creates a more disagreeable, bitter soul who continues to lose in scientific pursuit and in relationships. "I had always followed stubbornly my own solitary path, that tortuously winding path which had brought me back to where I begun," he says as the book's overall thesis. With all the disappointments Shannon faces through the 1948 novel, it is a surprise to find that happily-ever-after ending perfect for the likes of a scientist who isn't totally beaten down. 3-stars for the slow pace, but the research jargon and plot demanded it.

A page-turning novel set in 1920's Scotland...Cronin's protagonist is a brilliant scientist content to save the world, but makes a discovery that cause his scientific ordeals to take a backseat: a forbidden love. Cronin really puts us there, Dr. Shannon (our protagonist) is hilarious in his observations of the idiots around him....All in all a great read, and impossible to put down for the last 20 chapters...You'll feel better for the read....

Is this a purely romantic novel of M&B or Jackie Collins type? I do not think so. For me this is novel where the protagonist ( who seems to be a loser of sort) fights against all odds in pursuit of his dream.
This is the story of a young research scientist who loses his job in the university - just because he stands against his superior who is more interested in his own selfish ambitions.
This is the story of a lover who finds love in a young girl who shares his dreams - but who is unable to commit herself to him because of her conservative minded parents and their religious background.
This is story of a doctor who almost saves a dying kid - only to find him dead due to negligence of nurse.
This is the story of a research scientist who is hell bent on finding a cure to a deadly disease against all odds.
This is not a pure romantic novel.
This is a story of a loner and a loser who fights against the establishment singlehandedly.
When he finds himself immersed in all these failures there comes a ray of hope.. a new beginning...
Everyone who considers himself a loser MUST read this book.
