It has been a little while since we had a novel from this author but it has been worth the wait as she returns with an emotional and remarkable family saga. Thoroughly absorbing and moving.
It’s dangerous . . . and that’s the truth about love . . .
A young man shields his terrible wounds from his mother; a husband believes he can love his grief-stricken wife back to life; a young girl puts her own life on hold until her family can find their way back from blinding pain; a man surrenders to the helplessness of obsessive love.
Set in Ireland, this brilliant, intense story is about a family named O’Hara who chose to remain in the place of their loss, and the stranger from Germany who has run from his. It’s about love – for another, for a country, for family – and survival, and it’s remarkable.
