Synopsis

'Endlessly surprising and incredibly moving' David Nicholls


'A triumph ... the best novel I've read so far this year' Joseph O'Connor


In 1973, twenty-year-old Moll Gladney takes a morning bus from her rural home and disappears. Bewildered and distraught, Paddy and Kit must confront an unbearable prospect: that they will never see their daughter again.


Five years later, Moll returns. What - and who - she brings with her will change the course of her family's life forever. Beautiful and devastating, this exploration of loss, alienation and the redemptive power of love reaffirms Donal Ryan as one of the most talented and empathetic writers at work today.


'Outstanding ... Tender and beautifully written' Independent


'All the beauty and sorrow of life can be found in these pages' Kathleen MacMahon


'Exquisite ... Beautiful' Anne Griffin, author of When All Is Said


'Ryan gathers together the fragments of broken lives and makes us something new and beautiful from them' Ronan Hession, author of Leonard and Hungry Paul
