Publisher Description

'Excellent... this is a worthy page-turner' - PUBLISHERS WEEKLY

Breeda Looney tells herself she's happy with her simple life in a remote Irish fishing village. 

Sure, there are days she talks to no one but the cat, her panic attacks have become public spectacles, and crabby Aunt Nora considers her a total waste of skin...

But could one lie from her childhood change everything?

Breeda is about to stumble upon an old family secret never meant to see the light of day. Her beloved father, said to have died when Breeda was a child, might actually still be alive.

But secrets rarely exist alone.

And as Breeda digs up the family dirt to find her long-lost daddy, she quickly realizes she's just opened the biggest can of worms imaginable…

Breeda Looney steps forth. But what on earth is she about to discover?

Heartfelt, compelling and often darkly funny, this debut fiction from Ireland follows one woman's quest to find her truth and, ultimately, her place in the world. With a cast of colorful characters, and brimming with surprisingly tender moments, Breeda Looney will stay in your heart long after the final pages...
