From the Back Cover:

Diarmuid Devine, BA, thirty-seven years old, seems set for a lifetime of bachelorhood – a lonely English master at a Catholic school in Belfast, he is shocked and hurt to hear that his colleagues and students think of him as an old maid. Then he meets Una, a girl seventeen years his junior, with a knowing look in her eyes, a Dublin lilt to her voice and a reputation very different from his own. Their relationship transports him into a world of excitement and joy, but it also makes him vulnerable to the tragic consequences of rejection and scandal...

'Brian Moore is one of the best novelists of our day, a master of tales which strike and of strokes which tell.'

'Brian Moore is surely one of the most versatile and compelling novelists of today. He writes with such grace here, showing the humanity and moral dilemmas with his usual succinctness, yet giving space to exuberant descriptions.'

'Moore is a thoroughbred. A writer who can be elegant and plain... a fine storyteller.'
MELVYN BRAGG, 'Evening Standard'

'He writes simply and economically, but with a true generosity of vision.'

'Brian Moore is astonishing'
