PAPERBACK

WINNER of the An Post Irish Novel of the Year 2020 'You have to truly love people to write like this' Rachel Joyce 'One of the greatest novels of this century' Sunday Independent 'Gorgeously wrought' Guardian

In 1973, twenty-year-old Moll Gladney takes a morning bus from her rural home and disappears. Bewildered and distraught, Paddy and Kit must confront an unbearable prospect: that they will never see their daughter again. Five years later, Moll returns. What - and who - she brings with her will change the course of her family's life forever. Beautiful and devastating, this exploration of loss, alienation and the redemptive power of love reaffirms Donal Ryan as one of the most talented and empathetic writers at work today.

Beautiful' Anne Griffin, author of When All Is Said 'Ryan gathers together the fragments of broken lives and makes us something new and beautiful from them' Rónán Hession, author of Leonard and Hungry Paul
