Each month, Pat and his panel which is made up of Claudia Carroll, Stefanie Preissner and Keith Walsh pick the Eason Book of the Month from a shortlist of four books compiled by the Eason book team. In the last week of every month the panel will return to discuss the book on air and engage in a lively debate on the characters and themes of the chosen book.

Did Ye Hear Mammy Died by Seamas O'Reilly

Did Ye Hear Mammy Died by Seamas O'Reilly

Seamas O'Reilly's memoir of growing up as one of eleven children in rural Northern Ireland in the 1990s after the death of their mother when Seamas was five. He delves into his family - his pleasingly eccentric, reticent but deeply loving father; his rambunctious siblings, intent on enforcing a byzantine age-based hierarchy; and the numerous bewildering friends, relations and neighbours who blew in and out to 'help'. Seamas describes how his mother's death changed his childhood relationships with everyone and everything, as knowledge of his tragic experience preceded him.

As her return sends shockwaves through the community, terrified residents turn on each other, and it soon becomes clear that not everyone was honest about the night the Truetts died.

The First Day of Spring by Nancy Tucker

'So that was all it took,' I thought. 'That was all it took for me to feel like I had all the power in the world. One morning, one moment, one yellow-haired boy. It wasn't so much after all.' Chrissie has a new secret. She doesn't get to feel power like this at home, where food is scarce and attention scarcer. 15 years later, Julia is mother to a daughter, and struggling to afford food and school shoes. When the phone calls begin, Julia is too afraid to answer, because it's clear the caller knows what happened all those years ago. And it's time to face the truth: is forgiveness and redemption ever possible for someone who has killed?
