Abstract:

Presents the tale of a lonely caregiver and a cranky hoarder who tackle notions of forgiveness, independence, sainthood, duty, and connections before dark family secrets are brought to light, revealing the sinister fate of a missing local schoolgirl.

A tragic childhood event left Maud Drennan haunted. Now a caregiver, she keeps to herself, and visits an agoraphobic neighbor. Then she meets Cathal Flood, the lone occupant of a Gothic mansion crawling with feral cats. If she can help him get his house in order, he hopes to thwart his son's attempts to put him into an old-age home. The pair bonds over their shared love of Irish folktales, but family secrets and the cold-case of a missing schoolgirl lead to a search for answers-- and possibly forgiveness.
