The description of the book

Northern Ireland, mid-1970s. In a place and time where origins are more important than people’s actions and feelings. In the shadow of the riots and amid daily reports of violent incidents, 24-year-old Kushla leads a quiet life with her alcoholic mother in a small town near Belfast. During the day she teaches at a Catholic elementary school and in the evening she works in the family pub, which is run by her brother. There she meets Michael Agnew, a Protestant, lawyer, married, twice her age.

In a place where love is not far from violence, their encounter will change both of their lives forever. Kushla allows herself to be drawn into his world and crosses boundaries she never thought she would cross. At the same time, the father of one of her students, Davey, is brutally beaten, setting off a chain reaction of events that threatens everything and everyone Kushla seeks to contain and protect.
