COLETTE MURPHY is a twenty-eight-year-old care worker who lives at home with her father and brothers. The family is of Irish-Catholic descent and live in a close neighbourhood in the heart of Liverpool. Colette has a special bond with Maisie, one of the residents in the home where she works and is stunned when the old lady dies and leaves her a cottage in Ireland. With Maisie's legacy and the inspiration of a Victorian novelist, Colette decides to up sticks and set up home with her best friend, Marion. On their first morning in rural Ireland, they waken to a herd of cattle congregating at the back fence. Marion is convinced she will be eaten by them and Colette feeds them soda bread because she thinks they look hungry. This book is about their adventure and how they adapt to life in another country.
