Description
(New York Times Book Review Notable Book of the Year) It's the late 1950s, and nothing much is happening in the Irish village of Rathmoye, in this Booker Prize–nominated novel by three-time Whitbread Prize winner William Trevor. So it doesn't go unnoticed when a dark-haired stranger appears on his bicycle and begins photographing the mourners at Mrs. Connulty's funeral. But Miss Connulty, liberated at last by the death of her mother, resolves to keep an eye on this Florian Kilderry, and it's she who comes to witness the events that follow between Florian and Ellie Dillahan, the young bride of a widowed farmer.

"Trevor is fantastically effective at foreboding; he can make a reader squirm just by withholding the next bit of some long-past anterior action he's been recounting.... This [2009] novel, except for the accidents that took Mrs. Connulty's husband and Dillahan's first wife, is a delicate sort of drama—there is no corpse in the basement, no bomb lies hidden in any drawer—but even so, a reader will have his heart in his mouth for the last 50 pages. And when that heart settles back down, it will be broken and satisfied."—NYTBR
