She was bored of life, or she thought she was.

At the age of twenty-seven, Lís had accomplished quite a bit. She has a good husband, a son and a daughter, and they live in a nice little house by the river in a coastal town not too far from the city. Nevertheless, she was bored with life, or so she thought.

“A realistic, lyrical, literary novel written by Éilís Ní Anluain. There are literary echoes throughout — Ó Conaire and Ó Cadhain, Lawrence, Eliot and Frost — and the central woman of the story is on fire from beginning to end.” — Professor Angela Bourke, iris Comhar.
