One of Ireland's best-loved novelists returns with a haunting novella of love, loss and memory
Flora's father has been killed in the Battle of El Alamein, one of the many victims of the Second World War. For Flora and her mother, life will never be the same again.
Now, it's just Flora - and Nellie, the family's life-long housekeeper - left; to reminisce in old age, and what really happened between Flora and her brother, Eddie, at the end of that long Irish summer.
Appearing now with Jennifer Johnston's classic novel, TWO MOONS
In a house overlooking Dublin Bay, Mimi and her daughter Grace are disturbed by the unexpected arrival of Grace's daughter and her boyfriend. While Grace's visitors focus her attention on an uncertain future, Mimi must begin to set herself to rights with the betrayals and disappointments of the past.

Beloved Irish author Jennifer has written a stunning story of love, loss and memory * Irish Country Magazine *
Pen and prose as sharp and as poetic as ever... Johnston's typical grace and fluidity * Sunday Independent *
Quite beautiful... [a] concise and arresting story * Irish Times *
Her prose is occasionally full-blown in style but never without finesse and her status while quiet is unassailable * Irish Examiner *
Any new Jennifer Johnston book is a cause for celebration -- Martina Devlin, Best Reads of 2016
Praise for Jennifer Johnston: 'She has created a world of her own...of such material is the finest literature made' * Irish Times *
The quiet, elegiac prose is well sustained * Guardian *
A brilliant storyteller * Literary Review *
The best writer in Ireland -- Roddy Doyle
[A] radiant descriptive gift * Spectator *
Written in Johnston's usual haunting prose, where no word is unnecessary -- Maeve Binchy
Haunting... Johnston proves herself to be a writer not afraid to introduce dark and difficult subjects and in a manner that makes them believable * Irish Independent *
A very nearly perfect novel of broad, regretful vision and magical intimacy * Sunday Telegraph *
The Costa prizewinner and Booker-shortlisted Johnston knows how to tell a story succinctly...[she writes with] the deceptive ease of a skilled craftswoman...further proof of her skill as a writer * Irish Independent *
