A KEEPER

Gra­ham Nor­ton

WHO - - The List -

The sec­ond novel from the much-loved TV host takes a darker turn than his first, 2016’s Hold­ing. But the same nu­anced and wry un­der­stand­ing of pro­vin­cial Ir­ish life runs through this twisted tale of fam­i­lies and their dark se­crets. Af­ter the death of her mother, El­iz­a­beth Keane re­turns from Amer­ica to her small home town hop­ing she might fi­nally dis­cover the iden­tity of her fa­ther. Lo­cal folk­lore has it her mother be­gan see­ing the mys­tery man then van­ished, re­turn­ing home two years later with a baby in her arms and no men­tion of a hus­band. A col­lec­tion of rib­bon-bound let­ters ap­pears to pro­vide an­swers but the ter­ri­ble truth of what re­ally hap­pened all those years ago is un­cov­ered in her own slowly re­vealed sto­ry­line. Full of gothic twists and turns. (Out now)
