'Mattie Finch is a kid living with his aunt in Ireland in 1990.
'He often talks to his mother, but he hasn't seen his father Dave for six months.
'Dave's been trying to face his family, but there are just too many demons. He can't forget how he and his brother Stephen escaped the troubles of Northern Ireland ten years earlier. He is haunted by what happened when they met June and her sister Susan, and the irreversible changes the town of Stonebridge brought to their lives .
'A shattering and redemptive story of fathers and sons, and the power of memory.' (From the publisher's website.)
