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.

Extremely well written with some beautiful descriptions. A realistic portrayal of family life in 1960’s Ireland. There are hidden depths to novel multi-layered, thought provoking writing. It is a study of the emotions of a family living through the bereavement of the husband and father. It describes the development of ‘Nora’ and the journey she takes to becoming an independent person after her husband’s death. At the same time there is a growing awareness by the family of the current political situation ie Irish Troubles in the 1960’s. Lots to discuss. Wide ranging opinions in the group. Rated 7/10 Horley reading group
