ABBEY'S BOOKSELLER PICK ----- With her beguiling prose, Keegan's novel reads somewhat like a fable and has been on bestseller lists for a long time. Set in a small Irish town in the 80's, the story centres on family and township life as a darker truth emerges. Craig

It is 1985, in an Irish town. During the weeks leading up to Christmas, Bill Furlong, a coal and timber merchant, faces into his busiest season. As he does the rounds, he feels the past rising up to meet him - and encounters the complicit silences of a people controlled by the Church.
