Grief is difficult enough when it is pure and simple; it is even more difficult when it is tainted by guilt.

Fey O’Brien has been in love with Alec Cusack, a farmer and fisherman, from the moment she moved to the coastal village of Port Dubh. She was in love with him long before her husband died – so much so that she paid no heed to the rumours. Maybe Alec’s father killed his mother and then himself; that is, after all, what the inquest decided. Or could what the locals say be true: did Alec Cusack kill at least one of his parents?

After the death of Alec’s wife, suspicion follows Alec once again. Fey embarks on a trip to Ewes’ Rest, the island where Alec’s parents met their deaths. Will her time on the island finally reveal the truth? Or will it bring new and unexpected dangers her way?

 

Watching Them

Vivienne is thirty-one, pregnant, and terrified. In order to come to terms with her fears, she must finally acknowledge a childhood she has tried to forget.

Watching Them follows Vivienne on a journey through memory. She recalls childhood, school days and sleepovers. She recalls first loves and romantic experiences. She recalls college years, nights out, good friends and bad. She recalls the beauty of Carina, and the greatest moments of Carina’s life.

But in each of Vivienne’s memories, a shadow is lurking.

Why must she pretend that Carina is her cousin?

Why must she never go into the bungalow across the lake?

And why does she constantly lie to Carina, when Vivienne knows that with just one word of honesty, she could end Carina’s horror forever?

Watching Them is a story of growing up in a family with dark secrets. It’s a story of lives lived under the shadow of sexual abuse. It’s a story told through the eyes of Vivienne, a narrator who may never be ready to tell us the truth.
