Synopsis

**WINNER OF THE INTERNATIONAL DUBLIN LITERARY AWARD**

'I love
Idaho' Paula Hawkins, bestselling author of The Girl on the Train

This sharp, stunning debut novel and Irish bestseller about grief, loss and redemption is your next literary obsession


One hot August day a family drives to a mountain clearing to collect birch wood. Jenny, the mother, is in charge of lopping any small limbs off the logs with a hatchet. Wade, the father, does the stacking. The two daughters, June and May, aged nine and six, drink lemonade, swat away horseflies, bicker, sing snatches of songs as they while away the time.

But then Jenny does something unspeakable, an act so extreme it will scatter the family in every different direction, and leave dark unanswered questions for years to come.

'Unflinching…multi-layered storytelling that is both beautiful and devastating' Rachel Joyce, author of The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry

'A puzzle that enthrals from the outset' Guardian


'Hauntingly brilliant, this book will stay with you for days after you've put it down' Evening Standard, Books of the Year
