CHARLIE REGAN'S LIFE ISN'T GOING FORWARD, SO SHE'S DECIDED TO GO BACK. 'Wonderful - about friendship and failure, Ireland and England, love and guilt, cover-ups and brutal honesty' - MARIAN KEYES * 'A perfect page-turner. I loved it' - DOLLY ALDERTON
After a tough few years floundering around the British film industry, experimenting with amateur pornography and watching her father's health rapidly decline, Charlie and her best friend Laura journey to her ancestral home of Clipim, an island off the west coast of Ireland.
Knowing this could be the last chance to connect with her dad's history before she loses him, Charlie clings to the idea of her Irish roots offering some kind of solace. But when the girls arrive at Clipim, Charlie begins to question both her difficult relationship with Laura and her father's childhood stories. Before long, she's embroiled in a devastating conspiracy that's been sixty years in the making .Â . . and it's up to her to reveal the truth of it.
