For the son of the local sergeant in an isolated Garda station on the border between Cavan and Fermanagh, life is balanced between the brooding, taciturn presence of his father, whom he loves and fears in equal measure, and the reassurance of his warm and witty mother. His world is narrowed to lakes, woods, hayfields, country lanes and the amazing characters he encounters - tinkers, drinkers, publicans, policemen, farmers and the tantalising older sister of his Protestant friend. Amidst the drumlins and bogs, the boy's imagination roams free and unfettered. And at night, lulled by the rhythm of his mother's fleecy breathing, he finds solace. But change is coming. It's time to grow up...
