What to Read After... Twilight 15/09/20
A Greyhound of a Girl
Publisher: Marion Lloyd Books
'She knew it was special this trip ... It was actually impossible. Four generations of women, one of them dead, one of them dying, one of them driving, one of them just beginning.'
Way back in the 1920s, Tansy died of the flu; on her lap her daughter, little Emer, felt the illness inhabit her. Now, Emer lies dying; her own daughter, Scarlett, and grand-daughter Mary sadly watch her going. But Tansy’s ghost visits Mary and encourages the four women on a remarkable journey – from Dublin to the old farm in Wexford.
Memories, stories and emotions intertwine in this beautiful, contemplative story about a family and its progress through time. Past and present acquire equal weight as the women discover the deep ties connecting them.
