Luke O’Brien has left Dublin to live a quiet life on his family land on the bend of the River Sullane. Alone in his big house, he longs for a return to his family’s heyday and turns to books for solace. One morning a young woman arrives at his door and enters his life with profound consequences.
Her presence presents him and his family with an almost impossible dilemma. This is a novel about love, loyalty and the raging forces of nature.
More than anything, it is a book about the life of the mind and the redemptive powers of art.
