Product description


Driven from her home by a brother-in-law about to remarry, Annie Dunne has found her own peculiar haven at her cousin's farm in Wicklow. In the rigours of farm work and the ebbs and flows of a rural community, Annie carves a tough, but seemingly impregnable existence. When Annie's nephew brings his children to stay for the summer, she is given a rare opportunity for love, pleasure and adventure. Almost inevitably though, her new-found joy is threatened by outside and sometimes intangible forces - awakening sexuality, creeping modernity, animosity, family shame and, not least, Annie herself. A poetically written, finely wrought novel which subtly transforms the reality of the narrative into something rich and strange. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
