Summary
As nine members of a family gather for the wake of their drowned brother, his sister remembers the secret he shared with her about what happened in their grandmother's house thirty years ago, a betrayal that spans three generations
Summary
Veronica--once an attention-deprived middle child among 12 siblings, and now an unfulfilled wife and mother--has come to London to claim the body of her beloved yet estranged brother Liam who drowned himself at sea. As the nine surviving members of the Hegarty clan converge in Dublin for Liam's wake, Veronica wants to protect the past--and the secret of what transpired in her grandmother's house during the winter of 1968
