Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

It is 1959 in Wicklow, Ireland, and Annie and her cousin Sarah are living and working together to keep Sarah's small farm running. Suddenly, Annie's young niece and nephew are left in their care.

Unprepared for the chaos that the two children inevitably bring, but nervously excited nonetheless, Annie finds the interruption of her normal life and her last chance at happiness complicated further by the attention being paid to Sarah by a local man with his eye on the farm.

 

A summer of adventure, pain, delight, and, ultimately, epiphany unfolds for both the children and their caretakers in this poignant and exquisitely told story of innocence, loss, and reconciliation.

Synopsis:

The central character in "Annie Dunne" is a woman who has been pushed to the margins, a woman whom life has given few chances of happiness and fulfillment. The book reveals "one of the most memorable women in Irish fiction" ("San Francisco Chronicle.")
