Join us as award-winning writer Sue Hubbard discusses her latest novel – a poignant story of transformation, conjuring the rugged beauty of County Kerry’s coastline.
Newly widowed, Martha Cassidy has returned to a remote cottage in a virtually abandoned village on the west coast of Ireland, for reasons even she is uncertain of. As the days unfold, Martha searches for a way forward beyond grief, but finds herself drawn into a standoff between the entrepreneur Eugene Riordan and local hill farmer Paddy O’Connell. Caught between its history and its future, the Celtic Tiger reels with change, and Martha faces choices that will change her life forever. A novel about memory, faith and love, this is “a compelling story freighted with heartbreak and loss” (Shena Mackay), and a meditation on the fragile, improbable ways that history, landscape and unlikely intimacies can offer quiet redemption.
