Publisher Description

'Gripping, harrowing and extremely moving... A painfully page-turning read...' - The Sunday Times

Clonliffe Seminary, 1972. Odran Yates arrives after his mother informs him that he has a vocation to the priesthood. He is full of ambition and hope, dedicated to his studies and keen to make friends.

Forty years later, Odran's devotion has been challenged by the revelations that have shattered the Irish people's faith in the Church. And when a family tragedy opens wounds from his past, he is forced to confront the demons that have raged within a once-respected institution, and recognize his own complicity in their propagation.

From the award-winning author of The Heart's Invisible Furies, comes this courageous and intensely personal tale.
Readers are moved by A History of Loneliness:
***** 'Captivating, absorbing, heart-wrenching. A must read.'
***** 'A really powerful story from an author renowned for writing such stories.'
***** 'One of the most moving books I have ever read.'
