Eighteen-year-old Debbie was raised on her family?s rural dairy farm, forty minutes and a world away from Dublin. She lives with her mother, Maeve, a skittish woman who takes to her bed for days on end, claims not to know who Debbie?s father is, and believes her dreams are prophecies. Rounding out their small family is Maeve?s brother Billy, who lives in a caravan behind their house, drinks too much, and likes to impersonate famous dead writers online. Though they may have their quirks, the Whites? fierce love for one another is never in doubt.
