It is the late 1960s in Ireland. Nora Webster is living in a small town, looking after her four children, trying to rebuild her life after the death of her husband. She's intelligent, at times difficult and impatient, at times kind, but she is trapped by her circumstances, and waiting for any chance which will lift her beyond them. Slowly, through music and the power of friendship, she finds a glimmer of hope and a way of starting again. Toibin's portrait of Nora is harrowing, insightful and tender in a novel that illuminates human compassion and sorrow.
