This is a novel about four generations of women and the violent tensions and loving devotion, envy and self sacrifice that family life embodies.
Molly is now in her nineties, a devoted grandmother and great-grandmother who helps her grand-daughters Cara and Freya bring up their young children with incredible energy and diligence. Hers has been a life of unselfpitying service, from her working-class Dublin girlhood to her current status as the wealthy widow of a famous artist. But her own children, particularly her daughter Eileen, are her life's great failure: unhappy, self-indulgent women who resent the younger generation's apparent freedom from guilt and their unconventional family situations. This intricate web of female relationships comes under terrible strain when Molly, her health sapped by her constant efforts on behalf of others, decides to consult the family solicitor about changing her will. A remarkable, moving evocation of the warmth and complexities of family life.
