Rachael English is a well known Irish broadcaster and writer, and is currently a presenter on the radio show, Morning Ireland. Going Back is her first novel and was inspired by her own experiences of visiting Boston as a student in 1988. We've got five brand new copies of the book to give away to our readers!
In the summer of 1988, Elizabeth Kelly and her friends leave recession-hit Ireland for a summer of adventure and opportunity in Boston. The next four months change all of them, especially Elizabeth. Quiet and dutiful at home, she surprises herself and everyone else by falling for Danny Esposito, a restless charmer with a troublesome family.
More than twenty years later with opportunities in Ireland scarce once again, a new generation looks to America, awakening memories of a golden summer for their parents. When a crisis occurs, Elizabeth returns to Boston where she is drawn back into the life she once lived. But will she be able to reconcile the dreams of her twenty-year-old self with the woman she has become?
Going Back is a story of family, friendships and love, of difficult decisions and lifelong consequences.
