KIRKUS REVIEW

An intense tale of emotional conflict, for discriminating tastes, delicate in tone and shading and with Kate O'Brien's expected sensitivity of insight and touch. A story of modern Ireland and the conflict between a mother and the daughter of the man who had once humiliated her, -- a story of the ""silver cord"", as the mother determines to thwart the love that she finds growing between the girl, whose father had jilted her, and her own son. There is the shadow of war -- but this is not a war story.
