Another vibrant example that Sebastian Barry can write anything.

Harrowing and redemptive; Winona shows us how a timeless figure can rise from the ashes. With her unconventional motley crew of an adopted family, she perseveres.
But not in a conscious way, with humility and coming-of-age enlightenment, she finds her way.

A heart wrenching and beautiful story for fans of Where the Crawdad Sing, and Whiskey When We’re Dry!
