Ireland, 1950. Nina Hardy wakes in the big house where she grew up. Now aged fifty, she has returned to the fading beauty of her old home, and its unkempt gardens, its views of the wild Irish Sea, and its long-buried memories. With her childhood friend George, she is seeking peace from a turbulent world. But by the end of the day, a brutal crime will have been committed, which will alter their lives forever.

As Nina tries to make sense of everything that has happened, a remarkable story unfolds - a story of a childhood, of extraordinary friendships, and of a war. With wonderful characters, full of passion and drama, Shade is an unforgettable novel that will make great holiday reading.

I cannot express how much I enjoyed reading this book. When an author has the gift of writing lyrical, descriptive, colourful prose, as well as a riveting story that captivates the reader, the unique combination is magical. Rarely does a book move me with it's story as well as the style of story telling of the author. Neil Jordan is truly a sensitive and gifted author as well as a brilliant story teller. This book, in my opinion is one of the best I've ever read.
