Paperback / softback

Description

'A master of both language and storytelling' HILARY MANTEL'Compact and ordinary, it was a town in a hollow that had grown up there for no reason that anyone knew or wondered about . . .'Rathmoye, Ireland, in the middle of the last century, and into town comes a stranger on the day of Eileen Connulty's funeral.

Taking unwanted and unasked for photographs, Florian Kilderry upsets its carefully settled status quo.

But Ellie, a young convent girl married to a farmer still mourning his first wife, cannot help but be drawn to this trespassing youth.

Over the course of a long, warm summer Ellie and Florian form an attachment that sleepy Rathmoye cannot ignore . . . 'Unbearably moving' Spectator
