A lost girl. A mysterious house in Ireland. An invitation that changes everything.
Twenty years ago, at the end of a hot long Irish summer, three sisters walk down to the cool lake at their home, Swan Hall. As Maeve and Aisling watch their beautiful younger sister Nuala laughing and splashing, it is hard to hide their envy of her. But later that morning, when Nuala drowns, they are devastated.
Now, as Iris scatters the ashes of her beloved mother Aisling onto the golden leaves of Central Park, she feels very alone. But then hope comes in an invitation across the sea to Ireland from her mother’s sister, Maeve – the sister Aisling left behind and never spoke to again.
Swan Hall is more than Iris could ever have dreamed, sitting on the edge of a lake, full of history. But its dark corridors and staircases are caked in dust, and Iris feels a sense of unease. And then she finds a diary – Nuala’s diary from the summer she disappeared.
As Iris reads Nuala’s slanting script, she uncovers dark secrets and shocking betrayals, and she begins to wonder: was Nuala’s death really an accident? Can Iris find the truth, and will it change everything she knows about her mother... and herself?
A completely compelling and gripping read about the heartbreak and secrets that tore three sisters apart. Fans of Celeste Ng's ´Everything I Never Told You´ will like ´The Last Summer in Ireland´.
