A compelling and moving story, expertly told, that will draw you in and keep you in its grip until the last page. – DAILY EXPRESS Magnificent … his writing is evocative and perfect. His grasp of human loneliness and longing is beautiful and comforting. Atmospheric, creepy and impossible to put down. – THE TIMES I raved about Holding two years ago … A Keeper is even better. A powerful, very sad story, beautiful writing, two time frames that are perfectly balanced. Outstanding. Will easily be one of my books of 2018. A gripping, thoughtful tale about the search for identity, belonging and self-possession. – OBSERVER Moving and darkly funny. – GOOD HOUSEKEEPING Smart, well-written and thoroughly entertaining. – IRISH INDEPENDENT It’s a sad and lovely book, brimful of tenderness and compassion, where the revelations of the past upturn the perceptions of the present. – SUNDAY EXPRESS
From the bestselling author of Holding comes another sweeping, evocative tale set on the coast of Ireland.
