Early one October morning, Grace's mother wakes her and brutally cuts off her hair, declaring, You are the strong one now'. With winter close at hand and Ireland already suffering, Grace is no longer safe at home. And so her mother outfits Grace in men's clothing and casts her out. When her younger brother Colly follows after her, the two set off on a life-changing odyssey in the shadow of the Great Famine. To survive, Grace will become a boy, a bandit, a penitent and finally, a woman. A meditation on love, life and destiny, This Time of Light is an epic coming-of-age novel, and a poetic evocation of the Irish famine.
