Summary

Brought to you by Penguin.

Shortlisted for the 2015 Costa Novel Award.
Longlisted for the 2015 Man Booker Prize.
One of The Guardian's 100 Best Books of the 21st Century.

A book about family, selfishness and compassion on Ireland's Atlantic coast, from the Booker Prize-winner. 

Hanna, Dan, Constance and Emmet return to the west coast of Ireland for a final family Christmas in the home their mother is about to sell. As the feast turns to near painful comedy, a last, desperate act from Rosaleen - a woman who doesn't quite know how to love her own children - forces them to confront the weight of family ties and the road that brought them home.
