From the bestselling author of The Secret Scripture, a heartbreaking story of lost love. Jack McNulty, a former UN observer, has worked around the world and seen extraordinary things but, as he contemplates his return to Ireland after many years, his memories are dominated by his tumultuous marriage to Mai Kirwan. A great beauty with a vivid mind, Mai was also an elusive and troubled soul, stuck in a marriage that couldn't last. The Temporary Gentleman is a powerful account of one man's attempt to come to terms with the savage realities of the past.
