Editorial Review:
Cob and Colleen are two single friends from Dublin who move to a house in the country. The women are in their late twenties and are determined to start new lives in a fresh environment. Set in the early seventies, at a time of change, they discover an Ireland unwilling to move with the times, encountering suspicion, prejudice and some hostility from the locals. Colleen the pragmatist is a sensible woman, willing to compromise. Her friend Cob is less willing, with dramatic results. Cob is also unreliable, entirely unsettled in the country. She has two daughters from a difficult relationship, and despite past problems soon returns to Dublin, resuming a crazy lifestyle. It is partly the yo-yo nature of the women's relationship, coupled with their ongoing difficulties, battling forces who conspire against them that creates the tension and energy, ultimately guiding the women towards unexpected outcomes. Along the way, they encounter a cast of characters, some of whom are helpful in their quest, and others who are not. Colleen discovers a form of love with a country doctor, while Cob learns to appreciate bareback riding under the tuition of a gipsy boy. At the core of the story, there is love, friendship, humour, honesty, tragedy and hope. The language within the story is earthy. It is adult in content, with the women characters remaining strong. Most of all it is a story about identity during a period of change.
