Finding Alison by Deirdre Eustace. Published by Black & White

Alison feels like she has been frozen in time in the small Irish fishing village where she lives with her daughter. It’s been three years since her husband Sean put out to sea in a fierce storm, never to be seen again. Alison presumes her husband must have drowned, but without proof, it’s hard for her to move on and she has become estranged with her neighbors, her mother-in-law and her own daughter. When a traveling artist arrives in town, Alison wonders if she might dare risk her heart again, but the budding relationship reveals the secrets that have been buried in the little village, threatening to destroy Alison. This is a beautifully written story with a forbidding, sometimes threatening backdrop about secrets, both small and large
