Set in the grimy, backstreets and suburbs of Dublin. Bolger has often used a woman's voice to tell his story, and this novel is no exception; we follow the lives of three women -- a Victorian maid, a young woman brought up in the 1960s (the product of a violent family) and that young woman's daughter, the child of an incestuous relationship, hidden away from sight.
