Summary
On a January morning, Beth and Steve bring three-day-old Ismae home from the hospital. A little girl to complete their suburban family. Except Beth knows that Ismae is different. And that, as she gets older and stronger, her difference will become more obvious. As the future Beth imagined grows even more out of reach, the walls of their vast house close in on her, isolating her from Steve. Then she makes a terrible discovery ... Will Ismae's difference break her family apart? Or will Beth be able to see that it's the one thing that can save her? 'Little Ismae is an unforgettable character ... readers will be glad they've met her' BELINDA McKEON 'A novel about one woman's quest for an authentic life. When extraordinary new baby Ismae turns Beth's world inside out, she begins to understand the fierce power of mother-love and, through her daughter, learns to know and trust herself
Summary
When thirty-nine-year-old Beth discovers she's pregnant, it isn't the news she was expecting. Increasingly stifled by the middle-class suburbia of their life on Vesey Hill, she had come to terms with the fact that her small family consisted of eleven year old Alex and New Zealand husband Steve, and had begun to look forward to the possibilities of the future: returning to work and maybe leaving Ireland and the confines of Vesey Hill for a new life. As news of her pregnancy sinks in, Beth tries to tell herself that her feelings will change when the baby arrives but then Ismae is born and Beth begins to realise that her dream is now further away than ever. In the months after Ismae's birth, Beth and Steve's marriage is put to the test as a new reality they had never envisaged forces them to evaluate their lives, their marriage and each other.
