This novel opens onto the aftermath of a tragic event. The land is Ireland; it is post WW II. The German writer is both outsider and facilitator.

Josephine Hart's writing is sharp, perceptive. In her circumspect narrative, she reminds us how the states of love and loss are, at times, interchangeable.
