How To Say Goodbye

Author:

Katy Colins

Synopsis:

No-one is ever happy to see Grace Salmon. As a funeral arranger, she's responsible for steering strangers through the hardest day of their lives. It's not a job many people would want - but for Grace, giving people the chance to say a proper goodbye to the ones they love is the most important job in the world. From the flowers in the church to the drinks served at the wake, it's the personal touches that count; and it's amazing what you can find out about someone from their grieving relatives. Or their Facebook page. But when Grace oversteps the boundaries of her job, she accidentally finds out too much about someone who's died - and those they left behind. Faced with a huge dilemma, Grace is forced to step out of the shadows...and start living.

A Border Station

Author:

Shane Connaughton

Synopsis:

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...

On the cusp of manhood, his son is drawn in by these rough and ready men, stuck in this place and time, when all he wants is a chance to leave and start his life anew.
