Gripping family saga

Ask Again, Yes tells the story of two families across two generations. Through their shared Irish roots and history, circumstance, love and tragedy they are repeatedly brought together.

Though focusing on 2 small family groups the timescale allows the author to explore heavy topics including a child stillborn, acute mental illness, alcoholism, cheating, grief and abandonment.

This was an impressive, poignant and complex story. It is a breathtaking novel that will linger long after reading.
