Synopsis: IRELAND 1984 After Shell's mother dies, her obsessively religious father descends into alcoholic mourning and Shell is left to care for her younger brother and sister. Her only release from the harshness of everyday life comes from her budding spiritual friendship with a naive young priest, and most importantly, her developing relationship with childhood friend, Declan, charming, eloquent and persuasive. But when Declan suddenly leaves Ireland to seek his fortune in America, Shell finds herself pregnant and the centre of a scandal that rocks the small community in which she lives, with repercussions across the whole country. The lives of those immediately around her will never be the same again. This is a story of love and loss, religious belief and spirituality - it will move the hearts of any who read it.
About the Author: Siobhan is married and lives in Oxford. She was born in London to Irish parents, but in her youth spent much time in the family home in County Waterford, then Wicklow town. Today she visits friends and relatives in Ireland as often as she can. During a seven-year spell living in New York City, she was named one of the "top 100 Irish-Americans" by Irish-America Magazine and AerLingus for her global anti-censorship work with the writers' organisation PEN. This is her first novel.
