Set in her native Ireland, Edna O'Brien's newest novel explores the dark and torturous aspects of family ties. As Mary, the young heroine, tries first to conceal and then to escape her father's fateful attention, she finds herself driven into an emotional Styx. She becomes pregnant with her father's child, and as her private - and redeemable - tragedy is dragged into the public realm, she falls prey to militant factions on all sides.
