A story of lost childhood and redemption in the Irish Midlands

Sarah knows what happened to the Larkin children. They were spirited away somewhere, because their father had abandoned them when their mother died. Her own mother too is very ill. What will happen if she dies when her father is away working in England? But then, her mother dies suddenly and there is no sign of her father returning. She has to take drastic measures, and hide her body to pretend to the world that nothing has happened. Life on the outside must go on as normal. When her Dad comes home, he'll know what to do. But as the days wear on, there is no sign of him. Meanwhile, she and her brothers are led into a maze of events outside their control, which will draw them back many years later to confront their past. What will they find there? Will the whole house of cards come crashing down on them, or will they find redemption?
