'So how did you meet him? I hear you asking. Was it love at first sight? Was he a fellow teacher? Did you meet in a pub?
This might be hard to believe, but the first time I looked into your father's eyes, he was holding a gun to my head. But first, let me explain . . .'
Everything is coming together for twenty-year-old Kit. She loves her new subjects at Uni., she has some great friends, her big country family is safely three hours drive away, and the lecturer she's been idolising for months seems interested in her. Kit's life is taking off!
But then there's an accident, the family calls Kit back, and suddenly all her certainties are shattered. Kit takes off to Ireland in search of answers. What she finds is a past dominated by violence, a present where the history still lives and a man who can help her understand . . .
