Since the age of sixteen, Clare O'Connell has lived her life by four strict rules:
1. Don't talk about Ireland
2. Don't think about Ireland
3. Don't go to Ireland
4. Don't let anyone in
And so far, it's worked well. She's got a great career, amazing friends, and she's really happy. The future is all that counts, isn't it?
However Clare is about to realise that you can run from the past, but you can't always hide from it...
When her boss insists she travels to Ireland for work, Clare finds herself drawn back to the village of Ballykielty - the home of her family, and the home of her secrets. The one place where she vowed never to return to again...
With the door to her past now wide open, the first three rules have gone out of the window. Will Clare stick to rule number four?
Can she be brave and face up to her family and the demons of her past?
