The Long Falling
Grace is an Englishwoman who has lived in rural Ireland all her life, but is still a stranger. Haunted by the death of one son, for which her brutal husband blames her, and by the absence of another, she makes a decision which she hopes will alter everything. But her world is broken into pieces.
"The pacing is superb; the novel is written in spare, clean prose. The Long Falling is a brilliant first novel."
