May's Read: Cavan Library Reading Group

Flight by Oona Frawley

The story of four travellers whose journeys intersect one winter in Dublin. Sandrine, a Zimbabwean woman who works as a carer for Tom and Clare. 
Meanwhile Elizabeth, their daughter, carries the weight of her own body’s secret. Set in Ireland in 2004 as a referendum on citizenship approaches, this is a magically observed story of a family and belonging. Flight is among a new breed of Irish novel – one that recognizes the global nature of Ireland in the aftermath of the failed Celtic Tiger. An astonishing and atmospheric debut.
