Description

NOW A MAJOR BBC TV DRAMA SERIES

WITH AN INTRODUCTION BY COLM TOIBIN

‘Poetic and compelling, with a heart-stopping plot twist, Death and Nightingales seems to me a perfect novel’ Hilary Mantel

‘A miracle of a novel which combines prose of bleak, unadorned beauty with a plot that keeps you up all night wondering how it will end… a masterpiece’ Colm Tóibìn

It is 1883 and against the fearsome, unforgiving beauty of the Fermanagh landscape, the fate of Beth Winters unfolds.

Beth is determined to decide her own destiny but charmed by the roguish Liam Ward she seems doomed to repeat the tragic mistakes of her family’s past. Through the events of her twenty-fifth birthday, decades of pain and betrayal build to a devastating, deadly climax.
