He's an Irish political journalist in search of his past. She's an American genealogist trying to forget hers. But what's the real reason that keeps bringing them together? The Celtic Tiger economy is losing its fangs, so journalist Dillon Carroll must rent out his ancestral home in the Gaeltacht. The worsening exchange rate is depleting genealogist Lana Pedersen's budget, so the Baby boomer backpacker breaks into a vacant farmhouse for shelter. From the night the Irishman discovers the American at Drumcarroll, their tangent lives catalyse the chemistry between their beleaguered bodies and stormy spirits. How far will a man go, to know his father? To become a father? All his life, Dillon Carroll has felt cut off from the past by his lack of parents. Half his life, he has felt cut off from the future by his lack of posterity. Lana becomes Dillon's last hope for reconnecting with his roots, and with the meaning of his life: to fulfill his dream of belonging somewhere, to someone, forever.
