After the Wedding
(Hachette Books Ireland, 2014)
A sequel to One Summer, which was published in 2012 and which is set on Roone, a small island off the west coast of Ireland. I loved those characters and that place so much I had to go back to them. There they all were, pretty much as I’d left them two years earlier, and I was delighted to take up their stories and see what came out. This book, incidentally, is the only one my editor didn’t want me to change at all when she read it: ‘It’s perfect just the way it is,’ she said. Shucks.
In brief: Nell Mulcahy leaves Roone for a very different wedding to the one she’d envisaged with another man. A lot has changed since then, not all for the better, and she’s hoping to put the past behind her now and move on. But while she’s saying ‘I do’, a calamity on the island throws everything into turmoil . . .
