About this deal

She has very little there, unpleasant memories, items of small value, but all that changes when she finds a small stash of letters telling a story that she was never told. This novel will never be nominated for grand literary prizes, but I believe it makes an enjoyable read for those who like a good story with twists and turns. She receives a reply from one Edward Foley of Castle House, and what unfolds reminded me often of Stephen King’s ‘Misery’ - without the gore.

I'm not completely certain that I didn't miss something there, but I don't really feel like I can be bothered going back to re-read and find out).

As for Elizabeth, “back in New York, she had felt guilty for not missing her mother more, but in this house she felt her absence like a physical ache”. The sense of Patricia’s isolation as a single parent in 1970s rural Ireland is sensitively handled, while in both the present and past sections, the politics of small-town communities are captured with insight and precision. years earlier, a young woman stumbles from a remote stone house, the night quiet but for the tireless wind that circles her as she hurries further into the darkness away from the cliffs and the sea.

In clearing out her mother's wardrobe Elizabeth comes across a wooden box containing letters from her father whom she knows very little about. In the present, Elizabeth is faced with more unexpected shattering shocks regarding Zach that are to lead to life changing moves in her future. As she clears out her mother’s personal effects, she discovers a bundle of letters that appear to be from the father she has never known. Finding that she has time on her own she decides to delve into her mother's past and the book switches between Elizabeth and Patrica's stories respectively. She is less than keen on her remaining family, riddled with conflict and devious machinations, but she has to clear her mother's house with a view to selling it.

Instead we don't really find out about it, we hear bits and pieces via other inconsequential secondary characters. We don’t share your credit card details with third-party sellers, and we don’t sell your information to others.

To describe too much of what transpires between Patricia and the Foleys would be to spoil an intricately constructed tale, but it is one in which menace and mystery abound, tackling themes of grief, isolation and a sociopathic determination fuelled by loss and hope. She is a university lecturer, separated from her husband, and living in New York with her 17-year-old son. Final de ilginçti böyle bir son düşünmemiştim aslında yazarın başarısı da bu ; okuyucuya fırsat vermiyor ne olabileceği hakkında düşünmesine. Graham Norton has won 9 BAFTAs for Best Entertainment Performance, and Best Entertainment Programme. It is a mesmerizing read and so unexpected ,had no idea what would happen and it was all alarming and upsetting and yet i could not put it down.the TIMES'A compelling and moving story, expertly told, that will draw you in and keep you in its grip until the last page. Meanwhile she is told that she has also inherited another house, by the sea, which had belonged to her father whom she had never known. Overall however I was just a little bemused by the abrupt conclusion and the takeaway felt a little too simplistic. After enjoying the TV drama, “holding,” based on Graham Norton’s first book, I was pleased to discover his writing has continued.
