Description: In a wind-battered cottage in western Ireland, playwright Jack Ferris tries to salvage something from his broken love affair with actress Catherine Adams. Misunderstandings, alcohol, and despair have driven them apart. Jack attempts to cope with his loss by re-creating Catherine in his imagination. Very soon two worlds come to life -- one Protestant, the other Catholic -- rooted in opposites, yet each fascinated by the other. Catherine's past is reinvented, from her stern Presbyterian father, whose sense of duty as a sergeant for the Royal Ulster Constabulary earned him an unwanted place in the history of the Irish "Troubles, " to a showband dance in a marquee buffeted by Atlantic winds where Jack and Catherine first fall in love.

With a beguiling mixture of humor and sadness, Healy keeps the wheel of his novel turning until the imagined past runs seamlessly and dangerously back into the present.
