This Must Be the Place by Maggie O'Farrell (July 2016)

Meet Daniel Sullivan, a man with a complicated life.

A New Yorker living in the wilds of Ireland, he has children he never sees in California, a father he loathes in Brooklyn and a wife, Claudette, who is a reclusive ex-film star given to shooting at anyone who ventures up their driveway.

He is also about to find out something about a woman he lost touch with twenty years ago and this discovery will send him off-course, far away from wife and home.  Will his love for Claudette be enough to bring him back?

This Must Be the Place crosses continents and time zones, giving voice to a diverse and complex cast of characters.  At its heart, it is an extraordinary portrait of a marriage, the forces that hold it together and the pressures that drive it apart.
