A remote island off the west coast of Ireland, St Brigid's, is a barren landscape, its small community dwindling. But, according to rumour, it is a magical place, a home to a healing well.

Rose and Emer have resisted the call to the mainland. They are sisters but opposites in every way. Rose, beautiful and blessed with a large family, dotes on the bitter and defiant Emer.

When a stranger arrives in search of a miracle, the islanders are determined to keep their secrets close. Little do they realise that the stranger's quest will endanger the lives of all who remain on the island.

Industry Reviews
"With some artful weaving of fact and fiction, history and legend, harsh reality and Celtic myth, Carey has created an elegant and deeply evocative work of fiction."
Anne Cunningham, Irish Sunday Independent

"This is a captivating, eerily beautiful tome; full of mistrust, dark magic and superstition."
Jennifer McShane, Image Magazine

"A powerful, bewitching gothic tale of betrayal, superstition and desire."
The Lady

"A deserted island off the west coast of Ireland provides the vividly imagined setting for a tale of superstition and lust."
Guardian
