I love love love Jock Serong's other books, but this was just too raw. The violence stayed with me days and nights. Obviously well written and spoken to have such an impact but so sad and the villain so sick. I hoped for redemption at the end but I couldn't finish.

If people think this book is a hard read then they should listen to it. The combination of writer and reader is superb. Together they lay bare both familiar and surprising quirks of family, religion, sexual politics. This book is a tribute to women and girls set in and spoken in the beautiful Irish. Outstanding.
