Summary

When a torrid love affair shakes the very foundations of Lorraine Cheevers' world, she flees to Trawbawn, a seaside idyll of innocent childhood summers. Meanwhile a teenage boy lies in a coma in hospital and his father, Michael Carmody, is desperately searching for the people who put him there. His search leads him to Trawbawn and to a powerful and unexpected attraction. As time stands still for young Killan, it threatens to run out for a man and woman trying to put right their shattered pasts.

Nice surprise

Norton is a very gifted narrator, as I found listening to just about all the Joyce available from Audiobooks. So I chanced this non-Joyce material...great contemporary story, superbly read. I hope for more from Considine and Norton.
