Dark, moving and beautifully written, Bernie McGill's début collection of short stories explores the lives of women across the generations. From the storm-battered coastline of the north of Ireland to the sleeping villas of Andalusia, McGill's characters grapple with the consequences of affairs, bereavement, alcoholism, illness and murder.
Compassionate and quietly powerful, McGill's stories capture intimate moments of loss, love, and healing in a troubled age.
SHORTLISTED for the Edge Hill Short Story Prize 2014.
