|About the Book|
I dont think Ive ever read anything I didnt like by Trevor, and this is no exception. Its subtle and beautifully written, of course, and with one of my favorite themes -- that of what goes on inside people that others never know. It reminded me a little bit of Tóibíns Brooklyn (which I loved) though here we see the interior life of more than just the one young woman, as it is also the story of one placid little Irish town. As with anywhere, though, it may seem quiet, but theres a lot going on beneath.
