For Nan, on the threshold of puberty, and her younger sister Mary, innocence blends uneasily with the trials of convent life and a shadowy knowledge of the facts of life. For their mother, buffeted by the whims of her tyrannical, unreliable husband, the days take on an unreal, dreamlike quality. And while Nellie, the Dickensian maid with a dubious past, regales the children with tales of her antics, home becomes a haven to a stream of unwelcome guests - as the dangerous depths of the adult world loom ever closer...

Review:

Fresh, beautiful and quirky OBSERVER Full of laughter as well as affection ...a midsummer dream THE TIMES Clare Boylan has a light touch... her humour is sure, with a right feeling for the grotesque... the mixture is delicious. IRISH TIMES All the familiar concerns of Clare Boylan's short stories are extended here into a beautifully observed, witty and touching story of growing up in a tyrannical household and surviving. GOOD HOUSEKEEPING
