Clíona’s Wave by Dónal Minihane
One girl’s discovery of what’s buried inside us all.
Bridget, heavily influenced by her grandmother, learns the legacy of violence and suffering that surrounds her, including the dark past of her ex-IRA gunman father.
Will she prevent her sister from being taken to the Magdalene Laundry? Is she strong enough to resist the Catholic Church and who is the father of her sister’s child?
Cliona’s Wave seamlessly interweaves religion, history and philosophy and gives an insight into the new Irish State struggling with its dark past.
Dónal Minihane is from County Clare and this novel is based in the fishing village of Union Hall, County Cork in the 1940s.
