The Visitors by Patrick O'Keeffe

The Visitors

Patrick O'Keeffe

Moving, beautiful, shocking and tragic story of two modern day Irish families, as remembered by 40-something Jimmy Dwyer. Jimmy's thoughts stray between decades, continents and generations so this is not an easy read. But it's the best read I've had all year: and it's mid December and I'm not Irish.

Extract

_ That they will, Jimmy, but Seamus and me were so fond of each other. You'd never think people that fond would ever fall out. Fall out and never talk again. Makes me think, Jimmy, that our nature is not love.
