The new novel from the internationally bestselling suthor of Foster, Antarctica, and Walk the Blue Fields.

It is 1985, in an Irish town. During the weeks leading up to Christmas, Bill Furlong, a coal and timber merchant, faces into his busiest season. As he does the rounds, he feels the past rising up to meet him - and encounters the complicit silences of a people controlled by the Church.

The long-awaited new work from the author of Foster, and Small Things Like These is an unforgettable story of hope, quiet heroism and tenderness.
