It is the 1960s and Nora Webster is living with her two young sons in a small town on the east coast of Ireland. The love of her life, Maurice, has just died so she must work out how to forge a new life for herself. As Nora returns to memories of the happiness of her early marriage, something more painful begins to intrude: memories of her own mother and what brought about the terrifying distance between them.

Reading Group review. I found it rather disappointing. Having read Toibin's 'Testament of Mary', which was brilliant and thought-provoking and made a real impression on me, this novel didn't reach the same heights. It is, nevertheless, well-written and clearly parts of it are autobiographical, but it lacks passion and it is a little pedestrian.
