Description

Forty years earlier, a young woman stumbles from a remote stone house, the night quiet except for the constant wind that encircles her as she hurries deeper into the darkness away from the cliffs and the sea. For me it wasn't quite up to the mark of Holding which I loved but this nevertheless was read very quickly.

You will be surprised at many points, and you will carry on reading because you want to know what happened as much as Elizabeth does. By using the Web site, you confirm that you have read, understood, and agreed to be bound by the Terms and Conditions. Elizabeth thinks she knows her mother inside out, but her confidence in this takes a huge knock when she discovers a pile of ribbon wrapped letters in the back of Patricia's wardrobe. That things take a far darker turn is obvious but just how far-fetched they become was a disappointment. This is a hugely compelling family drama, of mothers whose children are everything, and of the darkness, heartbreak, intrigue, mental health issues and secrets that bubble within the facade of families, past and present.Born in Clondalkin, a suburb of Dublin, Norton's first big TV appearance was as Father Noel Furlong on Channel 4's Father Ted in the early 1990s. IRISH INDEPENDENT 'It's a sad and lovely book, brimful of tenderness and compassion, where the revelations of the past upturn the perceptions of the present. This novel will never be nominated for grand literary prizes, but I believe it makes an enjoyable read for those who like a good story with twists and turns.

IRISH INDEPENDENT'It's a sad and lovely book, brimful of tenderness and compassion, where the revelations of the past upturn the perceptions of the present. In the present, Elizabeth is faced with more unexpected shattering shocks regarding Zach that are to lead to life changing moves in her future.A compelling and moving story, expertly told, that will draw you in and keep you in its grip until the last page. The morning after arriving at her mother's home, she discovers letters from an Edward Foley hidden in the armoire; could this be her father? The sense of Patricia’s isolation as a single parent in 1970s rural Ireland is sensitively handled, while in both the present and past sections, the politics of small-town communities are captured with insight and precision. Alternating between "Now" and "Then" storylines, the backstory is revealed, and we see the connection between "now" and "then". But nobody seems to know anything about Edward Foley, and the deeper she digs she discovers that she knows nothing about where she came from.
