Summary Longlisted in the 2019 Indie Book Awards for Debut Fiction'A tale of dark family secrets, yet also a tale imbued with awe and wonder at life's mysteries. Prendergast vests her traumatised characters with dignity, and writes them with deep affection and understanding. Poetic, yet earthed, driven by a raw intensity, this impressive debut novel burns with love.' -- Arnold Zable'A lyrical portrait of love among the ruins.' -- Amanda LohreyShe looked like someone who has had a hard life and no money to take care of herself, like a broken woman at the end of the world, dead on her feet, skin slapped
