From the author of the Booker-shortlisted Small Things Like These, a heart-breaking, haunting story of childhood, loss and love by one of Ireland’s most acclaimed writers.

It is a hot summer in rural Ireland. A girl is sent to live with foster parents on a farm, not knowing when she will return home.

In the strangers’ house, she finds a warmth and affection she has not known before and slowly begins to blossom in their care. But in a house where there are meant to be no secrets, she discovers how fragile her idyll is.
