In a series of four interlinked novellas, four generations of an Irish farm family share unfulfilled dreams, missed opportunities, and compromised moral decisions, from a dairyman who falls for the younger sister of a woman he jilted, to a spinster who remembers her love for a soldier shattered by his World War I experiences. A first collection. 20,000 first printing.

"A remarkable achievement . . . There is a wonderful Irish music running through O’Keeffe’s prose, yet his tales of ordinary rural life in twentieth-century Ireland are unsparing and never sentimental."
—The Baltimore Sun
"Handsome, subtle narratives by an exquisitely talented Irishborn writer."
"Lush and evocative . . . a dreamlike collection."
—The New York Times Book Review
Patrick O'Keeffe emigrated from Ireland to the United States in the mid-1980s. He is a graduate of the University of Kentucky and earned a MFA from the University of Michigan. He now teaches at Ohio University and lives in Athens, Ohio.
