Rural Ireland, mid 20th Century, English family in the decaying "big house", colourful disadvantaged Irish, generational gaps among the English, love, and betrayal. From these fairly stock ingredients Jennifer Johnston weaves her usual magic. All her books that I have read are excellent. At the end you have empathy for all her characters - which is surely a sign of a great writer.

Short and very sweet, in a bitter, heart-rending, down-to-earth sort of way. Beautiful, unassuming prose
