The Truth Must Dazzle Gradually
by Helen Cullen
A celebration of the complex, flawed and stubbornly optimistic human heart
'There's a crack in everything, it's how the light gets in' Leonard CohenOn an island off the west coast of Ireland, the Moone family are poised for celebration - but are instead shattered by tragedy. Murtagh Moone is a potter and devoted husband to Maeve, an actor struggling with her most challenging role yet as mother to their four children. Now Murtagh must hold his family close as we bear witness to their story before that night.
We return to the day Maeve and Murtagh meet, outside Trinity College in Dublin, and watch how one love story gives rise to another. As the Moone children learn who their parents truly are, we journey onwards with them to a future that none of the Moones can predict.
Except perhaps Maeve herself.
