‘I devoured this, falling in love with the setting and with every character. It is just glorious. A close-up on the everyday beautiful details that make up love’ Emma Flint, author of Little Deaths

‘Loved it. Beautiful and original’ Sunday Independent

‘Cullen is a thoughtful writer and she dissects the stubborn optimism of the human heart with skill and sympathy’ Irish Independent

 

The Truth Must Dazzle Gradually

On an island off the west coast of Ireland, the Moone family gathers.

Maeve is an actor, struggling with her most challenging role yet – as a mother to four children. Murtagh, her devoted husband, is a potter whose craft brought them from the city to this rural life.

In the wake of one fateful night, the Moone siblings must learn the story of who their parents truly are, and what has happened since their first meeting, years before, outside Trinity College in Dublin.

We watch as one love story gives rise to another, until we arrive at a future that none of the Moones could have predicted.

Except perhaps Maeve herself.
