WW Connection #1: The setting of this book is in the Wicklow Mountains, albeit in a location unidentifiable.
Extra #1: Opening line: “My grandmother was born under the avalanche, the only one ever to have happened in this valley, or indeed any valley anywhere in Ireland. It left a place of deep shadows and sadness so that even the birds didn’t sing there anymore, on the side of that lonely hill in Wicklow.”
