Now, hired to bring home a stray daughter of the rich, he takes the girl's side against her powerful father, and suffers for it. Written by a critic, journalist and crime fiction reviewer for the Irish Times, this short novel is gripping, funny and stripped to the bone. Sad Song packs a punch like a fist in a velvet glove... The Open Door Series: Originally designed to promote adult literacy in Ireland, these original stories from best-loved authors and new voices showcase some of our best writing in short fiction.
