I'm reading this for the Russian Mother's Day Door on 24 Festive Tasks.
I picked it up despite the fact that I knew it covered some very raw and painful emotions because Anna McPartlin was recommended to me as one of Ireland's rising stars.
What I've read so far justifies that assessment. The prose is personal, powerful, accessible and has a distinct voice.
The story is filled with tragedy but it's also filled with honest human emotions love, anger, guilt and a little more love that make it compelling and real.
