Elizabeth is left reeling as she delves in her mother's life, her unsettling romance with her father, Edward Foley, a farmer living in a remote area by the sea.

Overall however I was just a little bemused by the abrupt conclusion and the takeaway felt a little too simplistic. Maybe I have been reading too much Tana French and Maeve Binchy, but the book didn't feel "Irish" to me. Growing up in a small town and without a father, Elizabeth longed to get away and now as a single mother herself to a teenage son she is none too pleased to be reunited with her judgmental extended family as she plans to clear the house for sale. It is not tense or a thriller by any means, but it does hold a great deal of dark mystery and sadness.The two treads of the story, current and historical , presented in parallel are an easy read and except for one element the plot is totally acceptable: where are Mary's relatives?

Now”: Only child Elizabeth Keane, a 44-year-old college instructor, divorcée and mother to 17-year-old Zach, living in a tiny apartment in Manhattan, travels to Ireland to finalize her recently deceased mother’s estate in Buncarragh.who knows what drives people to try to set things right ,and instead making it a kidnapping nightmare. Don't even get me started on why we get a separate POV for Rosemary, it wasn't necessary and added nothing to the story.

I just think that there were too many things happening and that Norton didn't make sure that both POVs worked well.

Norton cleverly mirrors the process of grieving in Patricia and Elizabeth’s stories, as the two women each mourn the passing of their mother. That box, and an appointment with her mother’s solicitor, unravels everything Elizabeth believes to be true about herself and her family.

Graham was soon approached by the BBC to front his own self-titled chat show The Graham Norton Show in 2007.

While staying at her mother's home, Elizabeth is informed there's a codicil to her mother's will and also finds letters from her father that he wrote to her mother almost 40 years ago. This is a hugely compelling family drama, of mothers whose children are everything, and of the darkness, heartbreak, intrigue, mental health issues and secrets that bubble within the facade of families, past and present. This is where the story begins shifting back and forth between present day and the early 1970s, before Elizabeth was born. Her mother has been dead for five months, and Patricia still finds herself setting the table for two.
