Spanning the twenty-five years of the Cork and Ross mission to South America, Children of the Sun details the new life, culture and challenges the missionaries encountered on their arrival to the infamous Land of the Incas.

Beginning in Cork, where the mission was founded by Bishop Lucey in the 1960s, the story travels thousands of miles to the Diocese of Trujillo in Peru, the Andes, and later on to Ecuador, where the Irish missionaries dedicated themselves to addressing the needs, spiritual and material, of the indigenous people.

Monsignor Leonard O’Brien’s book gives a wonderful account of a place of harsh landscapes, political instability and poverty, as well as a land steeped in ancient history, beauty and a warm and welcoming people.
