Debut novel by Lisa Geraghty
Jennifer Burke lives the dream life – a successful law practice in Castlebar, a husband who worships her and two beautiful, talented teenage daughters. At least that’s what she’s always told herself.
A West Kerry native, Jennifer met her future husband John and best friend Sinead in UCD where she studied law in the 1990s. From University, the confident and stylish Jennifer followed the pair back to their home County of Mayo where she started her family and opened her own law practice. But as the years progress, somewhere inside of Jennifer the splinters begin to deepen. When her mental health is shattered by a life-altering diagnosis she discovers how fragile her world has become.
This is a story of fear and loss, of desperation and pain, of hope and survival. When a woman’s strength is tested to the limit can she stand and fight for her life?
