Description

Brought to you by Penguin. Carmel had been alone all her life. She had been alone since she was twelve years old. The baby knew all this. They looked at each other; one life into another life, and the baby knew exactly how alone her mother had been. Nell - funny, brave and so much loved - is a young woman with adventure on her mind.

As she sets out into the world, she finds her family history hard to escape.

For her mother, Carmel, Nell's leaving home opens a space in her heart, where the turmoil of a lifetime begins to churn. And across the generations falls the long shadow of Carmel's famous father, an Irish poet of beautiful words and brutal actions. This is a meditation on love: spiritual, romantic, darkly sexual or genetic.

A generational saga that traces the inheritance not just of trauma but also of wonder, it is a testament to the glorious resilience of women in the face of promises false and true.

Above all, it is an exploration of the love between mother and daughter - sometimes fierce, often painful, but always transcendent. ©2023 Anne Enright (P)2023 Penguin Audio
