Inhaltsangabe

Shortlisted for the National Book Awards

Graham Norton's debut novel, Holding, was a Sunday Times best seller and loved everywhere. His new novel, A Keeper, is a twisted tale of secrets and ill-fated loves that once again demonstrates Norton's understanding of human nature and all its darkest flaws. 

The mystery of Elizabeth Keane's father is one that has never been solved by the people of Buncarragh - not for lack of speculation. Her mother, Patricia, had been assumed a spinster until she began dating a mysterious man from out of town and within months had left Buncarragh and had married. 

Less than two years later, Patricia was back, with a new baby in her arms but no new husband by her side and unbendingly silent about her recent past. A secret she would take with her to her grave. 

Now, as Elizabeth returns to the village after her mother's funeral, bringing with her her own regrets and wounds, she finds a thin pile of ribbon-bound letters at the back of a wardrobe that may at last hold the key to her past: 

Dear Lonely Leinster Lady,
I'm not really sure how to begin....

Inventive, amusing and very human tale

Who'd have thought Graham Norton can write such charming books? Have always loved his show and was very curious how he would tell a tale of a woman finding a new past and a new future. With his great sense of humour and sensitivity - and obviously, imagination - this is a perfect much, a real treat!

Loved it, from start to finish.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. A true page turner. I even shed some tears. Hope there will be a third novel from Graham.
