Review:

I was totally entranced ... a rare book (Ruth Scurr, The Times )

A fabulously benign book ... a work of sympathetic magic (Sebastian Barry, Guardian )

I can't think of anything I've read recently that has chronicled more accurately the thumping chaos of human hearts or felt more questioning and youthful and alive (Julie Myerson, Financial Times )

From the Back Cover:

'Lingers in the memory as a beautiful meditation on love, belonging and the impossibility of escape' Observer

It is summer and a stranger has come to quiet Rathmoye. He is noticed by Ellie, the young convent girl, who is married to Dillahan, a farmer still mourning his first wife. Over the long and warm days, Ellie and the stranger form an illicit attachment. And those in the town can only watch, holding their tongues, as passion, love and fate take their inevitable course.

'A series of wrenching human dramas, which Trevor depicts with kindness and beautiful delicacy' Sunday Telegraph

'Remarkable, heart-rending . . . as evocative and memory-staining as Thomas Hardy's Wessex. Brilliant. Trevor is the ultimate Old Master' Evening Standard
