Description


From a Man Booker Prize–winning author, a “hauntingly eloquent” novel of love, loss, family, and what a woman finds while in search of herself (The Seattle Times).
 
Born in Dublin in 1965, Maria Delahunty was raised by her grieving father after her mother died during childbirth. Two decades later, Maria is living in New York awash in longing and in love with the wrong man. Going through his things, she discovers a photograph of a little girl who looks an awful lot like her—but isn’t her. Soon Maria begins to unravel a long-buried secret more devastating than her father’s mourning, but bursting with possibility . . .
 
“Glittering . . . An Irish woman with a plate of steel somewhere between her skin and her heart . . . must travel back and forth, from childhood memories to the present, ratcheting herself up to adulthood as so many of us do.” —Susan Salter Reynolds, Los Angeles Times Book Review
 
“So sad that you want to laugh out loud. [This novel] deals with areas of experience and patterns of living that no one else has noticed.” —Colm Tóibín, New York Times–bestselling author of Brooklyn
 
“The emotional tautness springing from bare-bones storytelling suggests Raymond Carver. The penetrative exploration of domestic relationships, especial among women, calls to mind . . . Anne Tyler.” —Newsday
