The second book from our favourite author Eithne Shortall. An endearing, quirky and laugh out loud at times story set in the centre of Dublin. So many scenes I recognise, particularly the graveyard scenes set just next to where my lovely Da is buried.  Highly recommend, will make you smille, laugh and cry.


This is what the others say:

Winner of The Big Book Awards: The Best Page Turners

Grace sees her boyfriend Henry everywhere. In the supermarket, on the street, at the graveyard.

Only Henry is dead. He died two months earlier, leaving a huge hole in Grace's life and in her heart. But then a man who looks uncannily like Henry turns up to fix her boiler one day. Grace isn't hallucinating - he really does look exactly like Grace's lost love.

Grace becomes captivated by this stranger, Andy. Reminded of everything she once had, can Grace recreate that lost love or does loving Andy mean letting go of Henry?

'I really enjoyed it - satisfying and warm, and written with humour and heart.' Sheila O'Flanagan, author of The Missing Wife

Grace after Henry
