As you were

Feeney, Elaine2020
Sinead Hynes is a tough, driven, funny, clever young property developer with a terrifying secret. No-one knows it- not her fellow patients in a failing Galway hospital, and certainly not her family. She has confided only in Google and a shiny magpie. But she can't go on like this, tireless trying to outstrip her past and in mortal fear of her future. Across the ward, Margaret Rose is running her chaotic family from her rose-gold Nokia. In the next door bed, Jane, rarely but piercingly lucid, is searching for a decent bra and for someone to listen. Sinead needs them both. As You Were is about intimate histories, institutional failures, the kindness of strangers, and the darkly present past of modern Ireland. It is about women's stories and women's struggles. It is about seizing the moment to be free.
