A touching literary gem with the resonances and deep motivating power of Lesley Glaister's AS FAR AS YOU CAN GO, but set in Dublin and Trabawn, Ireland rather than extreme rural Australia. Like a stone tossed at a pond, one illicit situation leads to deceit and deception, lies and concealment, and teeters on a precipice at the moment of a tragic yet avoidable accident. Morality and integrity fall away in the face of narcissistic self-interest, and eight lives are irrevocably altered. Only some will mature from adversity, and for others, life will hang in the balance.
