It is Ireland in the early 1990s. Three women - Dora Devereux, her daughter Lily and her granddaughter Helen - have arrived, after years of strife, at an uneasy truce. For Helen's adored brother Declan is dying, and the three of them join him in the grandmother's crumbling old house by the sea with two of his friends.nnThese six, from different generations and with different beliefs, are forced to listen to each other and come to terms with each other. 'We shall be reading and living with The Blackwater Lightship in twenty years' - Independent on Sunday. 'I know of no novelist under fifty who is Toibin's equal. And in this, his fourth book, his prose rises to heights of an extraordinary beauty' - Paul Binding, Independent on Sunday.nn
