Shortlisted for Best Novel in the Irish Book Awards and
Longlisted for the 2020 Walter Scott Prize for Historical Fiction.
'A love letter to the sleepy, unhurried and delightfully odd Ireland that is all but gone' Irish Independent. The most enchanting novel you'll read this year, from the acclaimed author of Man Booker-longlisted History of the Rain
After dropping out of the seminary, seventeen-year-old Noel Crowe finds himself back in Faha; a small Irish parish where nothing ever changes, including the ever-falling rain.
But one morning the rain stops and news reaches the parish - the electricity is finally arriving. With it comes a lodger to Noel's home, Christy McMahon. Though he can't explain it, Noel knows right then: something has changed.
As Noel navigates his coming-of-age by Christy's side, falling in and out of love, Christy's buried past gradually comes to light, casting a glow on a small world and making it new.
