Description
(New York Times Notable Book, Book Sense Pick) The arrival of a tractor and its owner precipitates a chain of events in an isolated Irish community, in this tragic novel from the author of In the Forest and Lantern Slides. Joseph Brennan, who had ruled the mountain, sees in Michael Bugler a threat. Yet for Breege, Joseph's younger sister, Bugler is an irresistible stranger to whose attraction she must not succumb for fear of betraying her brother.

"The wild Irish humor and savage Irish melancholy that are both legend and stereotype receive exemplary treatment in this powerful novel by the prolific O'Brien.... The climate, the landscape, the history, all so deeply ingrained in the native Irish psyche, underscore the suspense. Remaining unflinchingly true to her characters, O'Brien allows the inevitable tragedy to play itself out, evincing the pity and terror of classical drama."Publishers Weekly
