Summary
When Lucy wins a place at university, she thinks London will unlock her future. Yet Lucy's transition to a new life is more overwhelming than she ever expected. As she works long shifts to make ends meet and navigates chaotic parties from East London warehouses to South Kensington mansions, she still feels like an outsider among her fellow students. When things come to a head at her graduation, Lucy takes off for Ireland, seeking solace in her late grandfather's cottage and the wild landscape that surrounds it, wondering if she can piece together who she really is
Summary
Follows the life of Lucy, beginning with her working-class childhood in northern England growing up with her mother—comforting, mysterious and tirelessly devoted—whose lessons in womanhood shape Lucy’s appreciation for desire, her sense of duty as a caretaker and her hunger for a better, maybe reckless life
