Description

When it comes to relationships, there is not much in the way of cheering fare, with disappointment, intrigue, darkness, and stoicism from two different eras. That box, and an appointment with her mother’s solicitor, unravels everything Elizabeth believes to be true about herself and her family.

Loneliness features in the lives of several of the characters but Elizabeth’s life is more positive at the end of the book.To describe too much of what transpires between Patricia and the Foleys would be to spoil an intricately constructed tale, but it is one in which menace and mystery abound, tackling themes of grief, isolation and a sociopathic determination fuelled by loss and hope.

She has very little there, unpleasant memories, items of small value, but all that changes when she finds a small stash of letters telling a story that she was never told. Overall, I liked the story and the plot and felt it was fairly well written, although it did bring to mind shades of "Wuthering Heights" meets "Jane Eyre" meets "Rebecca". Of course, she is not there for guidance so she turns to her divorced husband to step in and be a father, something he has done little of before this.

Her mother has been dead for five months, and Patricia still finds herself setting the table for two. Elizabeth is left reeling as she delves in her mother's life, her unsettling romance with her father, Edward Foley, a farmer living in a remote area by the sea. She comes across some handwritten letters to her mother from a man by the name of Edward Foley in Cork. In the wardrobe she finds a box with some letters that appear to be written by her father, a man whom she has never known, who she believes passed away when she was but an infant.Born in Clondalkin, a suburb of Dublin, Norton's first big TV appearance was as Father Noel Furlong on Channel 4's Father Ted in the early 1990s. His characters have a cardboard quality and he has jammed the plot with events that never quite come together in a believable way. Everything that happens to Elizabeth deepens her understanding of motherhood even though her life is turned upside down. The book goes back and forward in time telling the story from both Elizabeth in present day and her mother Patricia in the past.
