Alice Taylor’s gripping sequel to The Woman of the House, a story of land, love and family set in rural Ireland.

Tensions on the home front are bitter enough, but at the Conway farm across the river, more trouble is brewing. Slovenly Matt Conway feels trapped and abuses his wife, Biddy. Spurred on by a misguided belief that the Phelans got the best of him in a loan to buy land, he keeps vigil at a fence post plotting revenge....

Excellent Story Telling.

My parents from Ireland loved this author and encouraged me to read her books. I never did until now, I loved this one and the previous one. The narrator is brilliant listening to this book is like listening to a play.
