The Truth About Love : It's dangerous . . . and that's the truth about love. A young man shields his terrible wounds from his mother; a husband believes he can love his grief-stricken wife back to life; a young girl puts her own life on hold until her family can find their way back from blinding pain; a man surrenders to the helplessness of obsessive love. Set in Ireland, this brilliant, intense story is about a family named O'Hara who chose to remain in the place of their loss, and the stranger from Germany who ran from his. It's about love - for another, for a country, for family - and survival, and it's remarkable.
