Read what others say about this book:
“…A delicate, luminous, mysterious book. I am not able to decide what the exact genre is – is it magical realism? Fantasy? Literary fiction? All of the above? It’s hard to define.”
“After reading the first paragraph, I knew I had picked a winner. The story instantly engages you, the words flowing elegantly and as magically as the story itself…”
“This is deeply soulful writing, pitch perfect for our fractured times.”
“Unputdownable…You will read and re-read.”
“Niamh Clune is, in the Irish tradition, a masterful wordsmith. The story is beautifully written, powerful, moving, original and believable.”
“…A female Pat Conroy. This Irish lassie has been kissed by the faeries in order to come up with such an outstanding work. Mystical writing at its best!”

Kevin continued staring at Walter, eyes locked but unblinking. The man still wouldn’t speak.
Walter frowned. “You’re driving me crazy, you know that? I’ve known you for decades, but I swear you get a little crazier every year. First you go running off behind those cabins, doing God knows what in the ruins. Then you’re talking to the wall when you think I’m not here. You sleep on a mattress outside, for God’s sake. If you know something about this comb, you tell me now!”
Kevin took a step back, eyes wide at Walter’s outburst. Even Walter cringed inwardly. He was letting this get to him. He needed to step back and relax.
“I don’t even know what you’re talking about,” Kevin said.
“A comb, little thing. Pam was talking about it. When was the last time you went into the station? What are you doing back there, Kevin?”
“Nothing. I work, take walks, and sleep. It’s all I do.”
“You’re lying to me.”
Kevin shrugged again and shook his head. “Can’t lie when I’m telling the truth. I didn’t do anything.”
Walter grunted in response and turned back toward his house. His gut twisted with nerves. Something here didn’t add up, and it hurt his brain the more he thought about it. Expensive combs didn’t just turn up in abandoned buildings.
He sighed. In all honesty, it was probably just a comb someone dropped on accident while breaking into the station. Visitors were drawn to the old building, just like the camper who found the hairpiece. Someone could have easily dropped it without realizing they’d done it.
But if that was true, why did every ounce of him scream that this thing was bad news? His bones ached. Tension pulled on his shoulders. He wanted to nap, to sleep it off, but he couldn’t ignore his intuition. Something bad was about to happen.
Don’t forget to find what you need to work out the key to the big draw. Good luck!
