Two people are drawn together even though they've never met: Chicago native Justin Hitchcock, who has just followed his daughter and ex-wife to London, and Irishwoman Joyce Conway, who is going through her own tragedy and divorce. As the story progresses, the lives of Joyce and Justin become entwined, with sections of the novel alternating between each character’s perspective. At times, Sile Bermingham's narration has little vocal variation, and it’s difficult to determine which character is speaking. But even with some early misses, Bermingham soon settles into a reading that expresses the tension and emotion building between Joyce and Justin, and leads to a satisfying conclusion.
