As world events take over in a way that nobody thought possible, paranoia becomes part of everyday life. The insidious feeling of being watched creeps over the community of Waterport, with locals ever mindful of ‘what would the neighbours think?’

As people handle the changes in different ways, some grow stronger and more resilient, but others feel the loss of control over their own lives overwhelming. Cracks begin to show, and a cold eye is cast on how well the characters were really connected to each other. Feelings become visceral and raw in the face of loneliness, and questions are asked about their own sense of worth and their place in the community.

Some struggle more than others, and a years-old secret begins to haunt in a very real way one of the main characters and threaten what’s left of their already tattered reputation. Having already lost their good standing in the community – there is not much left to lose, and that is when we humans are at our most dangerous.

Gemma Bolger is a mother of four, who has only recently taken up writing as her children have gotten older. Gemma is married to Pat and they have recently celebrated their silver wedding anniversary. Living in rural Waterford, she enjoys the space and peace of her surroundings. Gemma runs a small engineering business with her husband but still manages to find time for her hobbies. As well as reading and creative writing, she loves to swim and sing – but not at the same time! Weather permitting, she does her best to be green-fingered and loses herself in gardening.
