Born and raised on a dairy farm in rural County Limerick, Ireland, Patrick O’Keeffe has penned an accomplished debut with The Hill Road, unveiling the precarious balance of family intimacies played out in the timeless and cloistered world of the Irish farm country. O’Keeffe’s four linked novellas span time and generations, and each brims with gorgeous, thoughtful prose and enduring characters.Love and secrets, unfulfilled dreams and missed opportunities, fear, greed, and compromised moral decisions all leave their mark here. A dairy farmer unknowingly falls in love with the younger sister of a woman he once cruelly jilted. A young man recalls his spinster aunt and the tragic story of her life’s great love—a soldier who returned alive but altered by the Great War.A richly rewarding work that will resonate with fans of William Trevor and Alice Munro, The Hill Roadheralds the arrival of an important new voice.
