Desire Lines

(2001)
A novel by

 
 
With her glamorous acting career in London on the slippery slope, Clare Murphy decides to return home to Belfast to lick her wounds. Unable to find acting jobs, she agrees to help a local drama group led by the rather gorgeous Lorcan O'Carroll. Father Lorcan O'Carroll that is. To her amazement, her attraction to the priest seems to be not only strongly sexual but disturbingly mutual. In panic, Clare has a fling with a younger - a much younger - actor. But she soon discovers that love is not a thing to be handled lightly...'a well-plotted novel that sustains the story until the end...McCartney has a strong observational style that's pacy and light...a strong debut' Irish Times 'Within a few pages it becomes clear McCartney is a serious writer, with a considerable grasp on the craft of fiction, reeling her reader in slowly, but surely.. a beguiling love story.' Belfast Telegraph Annie McCartney explores some mighty themes in this novel and offers no glib solutions, making this new author a very intriguing and promising prospect indeed.' Irish Post
