The Truth Must Dazzle Gradually, Helen Cullen ( PB 2021)
AN IMMERSIVE AND HEARTFELT EXPLORATION OF FAMILY AND LOVE
A beautiful bittersweet story of love, loss and families all set in the most irresistible of locations. Tears were shed!' Graham Norton 'A compassionate portrayal of love, support and grief ... a writer whose skill is matched by an ability to surprise with each new work' John Boyne, Irish Times'
On an island off the west coast of Ireland, the Moone family are shattered by tragedy. Murtagh Moone is a potter and devoted husband to Maeve, an actor struggling with her most challenging role yet - being a mother to their four children.
Now Murtagh must hold his family close as we bear witness to their story before that tragic night. We return to the day Maeve and Murtagh meet, outside Trinity College in Dublin, and watch how one love story gives rise to another. And as the Moone children learn who their parents truly are, we journey onwards with them to a future that none of the Moones could predict .
