Set in a small town on Ireland's Atlantic Coast, the novel spans 30 years and tells the story of Rosaleen, the matriarch of a family forever on the cusp of coming together or falling apart. After her four children have long left home, Rosaleen decides to sell the family home and divide the proceeds, a promise that brings the family together for one final Christmas.
