Inhaltsangabe: In her old family home Constance waits, finding solace only in the company of Bridie, the young girl from the convent who understands her need for independence and for solitude. Constance also waits for the father of her child to come, and to arrange things on her own terms.
It is difficult to convey the marvellous quality of this book. Constance Keating is a major fictional portrait, her death finally noble (Martyn Goff Daily Telegraph)
The ending brings more than a lump to the throat. It is magnificent ( Daily Express)
She is a skilful writer, using short flashbacks... in such a way that each page widens the picture. You start with a solitary woman, dying alone; you finish with a past, a history, great tenderness and no sentimentality (Caroline Moorhead Spectator)
A most distinguished novel ( Irish Press)
