Product description


A compelling story, freighted with heartbreak and loss.--Shena Mackay, author of The Orchard on Fire

A beautifully written and evocative novel about grief and greed, art and life, isolation and emotion.--Amanda Craig, author of The Lie of the Land

A deeply moving meditation on loss and salvation. Hubbard brilliantly uses the restless moods and colors of the Irish landscape to evoke the transience of human emotion. Its echoes will remain with readers long after the book is finished.--Patricia Falvey, author of The Yellow House

Affecting . . . takes readers on a refreshing sojourn in Ireland's County Kerry . . . Hubbard's ruminations on grief carry this novel and should appeal to fans of Kristin Hannah or Claire-Louise Bennett.

For her keen and gracious insights into the relentless grieving process, for her transcendent evocation of the rough charm and enduring splendor of Ireland's rural treasures, Hubbard deserves a place in the literary pantheon near Colm Tóibín, Anne Enright, and William Trevor.

Quiet, gorgeous . . . a haunting read . . . So careful is [Hubbard's] prose, so beautifully wrought and thoughtful her passages, that the reader is swept along in this lovely, quiet novel about a woman picking her way carefully through loneliness, grief and healing.
