In Northern Ireland during the early nineties, Maeve wants nothing more than to escape her small border town for the big city. While she waits for her exam results she takes a summer job at a local shirt factory where she works alongside Catholics and Protestants alike. This novel is a snapshot in time, showing life at a difficult time in history, but also a simpler one. The friendships between the women, the local gatherings, all combine to make this beautifully written coming of age story
