Tax included.
From the bestselling author of Beatrice comes a mesmerising novel of loss, memory and the love of a mother for her child. It is 1970, and Greta is a young housewife, happily ensconced in her country house with her loving husband, Tomas, and young daughter, Christina. And then the luminous, magnificent Angeline appears, almost as if by magic. With her vivid clothes, unconventional ideas and enigmatic presence, she begins to weave a magic spell around Greta's family, with shattering consequences. Thirty years later, history repeats itself, as Christina reaches a desperate crossroads as a mother, shunned by her family for some terrible, unnamed crime. The only person who understands her is her younger son, Cian, their bond unbreakable. So when Christina embarks on her desperate plan, she knows that she must take Cian with her, far away from everything he knows. Taking the reader from Co. Meath to the vast landscape of the Pacific North-West, Noelle Harrison shows us how a mother's love can survive everything, even a thirty-year separation and a distance of five thousand miles. And how anyone, no matter how flawed, can find redemption. show more
