International IMPAC Dublin Literary Awards Best Novel (nominee)
Booker Prize Best Novel (nominee)
The inimitable William Trevor returns with a story of suspicion, guilt, forbidden love and the possibility of starting over.

It's summer, and nothing much is happening in Rathmoye. So it doesn't go unnoticed when a dark-haired stranger begins photographing the mourners at Mrs. Connulty's funeral. Florian Kilderry couldn't know that the Connultys were said to own half the town. But Miss Connulty resolves to keep an eye on Florian . and she becomes a witness to the ensuing events. In a characteristically masterful way, Trevor evokes the passions and frustrations in an Irish town during one long summer.
