Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

<p> IF YOU ASKED THE PEOPLE OF KENMARE ABOUT MARY, THEY'D TELL YOU SHE WAS BORN UNLUCKY. SOME WOULD SAY SHE'S A BIT 'STRANGE'. BUT ALL ADMIRE HER COURAGE. </p> <p>They'd tell you Penny is the life and soul of the party. Yes, she drinks a bit too much. And it's true she's a home-wrecker.</p> <p>If you asked about Adam, the women would tell you he's a cheating scumbag. But the lads in the pub would mention his affair with Penny with a trace of envy.</p> <p>They'd all tell you Ivan's greatest strength and weakness is his heart. And his wife was a terrible woman to leave him, taking his children.</p> <p>If you asked about Sam, they'd speculate with great relish on their mysterious American visitor. The truth will provide them with gossip for a year. But they'll never know the thing that haunts him.</p> <p>If you asked the people of Kenmare about the chances of love and happiness for these five souls, they'd shake their heads and look glum.</p> <p> BUT SOMETIMES THEY ARE WRONG. </p> <p> Praise for Because You Are With Me </p> <p>'Crisply written, insightful and moving' Sunday Independent </p> <p> 'Because You Are With Me captures the pain of loss and longing and all the ordinary things in between' Irish Independent </p>
