Synopsis

The Sunday Times Bestseller.

From the bestselling author of Holding comes a masterly tale of secrets and ill-fated loves set on the coast of Ireland.

"Dear Lonely Leinster Lady, I'm not really sure how to begin . . ."

Elizabeth Keane returns to Ireland after her mother's death, intent only on wrapping up that dismal part of her life. There is nothing here for her; she wonders if there ever was. The house of her childhood is stuffed full of useless things, her mother's presence already fading. And perhaps, had she not found the small stash of letters, the truth would never have come to light.

40 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. She has no sense of where she is going, only that she must keep on.

This compelling new novel confirms Graham Norton's status as a fresh, literary voice, bringing his clear-eyed understanding of human nature and its darkest flaws.

External Reviews

'A Keeper is a gripping, thoughtful tale about the search for identity, belonging and self-possession.' - The Guardian.

'Magnificent . . . his writing is evocative and perfect. His grasp of human loneliness and longing is beautiful and comforting.' - Marian Keyes.

'Perfectly crafted, a beautiful, gripping account of Irish memory and deceit. A terrific achievement.' - Andrew O'Hagan.

'I raved about Holding two years ago . . . A Keeper is even better. A powerful, very sad story, beautiful writing, two time frames that are perfectly balanced. Outstanding.' - John Boyne.
