Notes:
London, July 1976. It hasn't rained for months, and Robert Riordan tells his wife Gretta that he's going round the corner to buy a newspaper. He doesn't come back. The search for Robert brings Gretta's children - two estranged sisters and a brother on the brink of divorce - back home, each with different ideas as to where their father might have gone. None of them suspects that their mother might have an explanation that even now she cannot share.

I LOVED this book! It is set in a heatwave summer of 1976 and portrays a dysfunctional Irish Catholic family who gather together because the father of the family suddenly goes missing. There are many flawed characters, each with their own secret to tell, and these multiple back stories are what I enjoyed most about the book, as we travel along with them on their journey of self analysis, misjudgements and struggles within their family.
