The poignant story of an Irish girl who comes to London and finds first success, then heartbreak, from the highly-acclaimed Irish journalist whose novels of life in Ireland speak for a generation.
When Aran Campion leaves her sleepy Irish fishing village for faraway London, she wants both to escape and to grow. Soon her job, her music, her Saturday market stall make her life too full for the love and marriage that once seemed to be her destiny.
Until she meets a struggling musician called Ben. Despite differences of race, religion, class and education, Ben and Aran seem destined for dizzying success.
Until Aran has to deal, alone, with the child who could spoil all her dreams.
