Nine lives. Four generations. One family. The MacEntees are no ordinary family. Determined to be different to other people, they have carved out a place for themselves in Irish life by the sheer force of their own personalities. But when a horrifying act of violence befalls television star Alma, a chain of events is set in motion that will leave even the MacEntees struggling to make sense of who they are.
As media storms rage about them and secrets rise to the surface, Deirdre, the flamboyant matriarch, is planning a birthday party for herself and with it one final, shocking surprise. From Kathleen MacMahon, the number-one best-selling author of This Is How it Ends, comes this powerful and poignant novel capturing a moment in the life of one family.
