Articles
St Brigid's is a windswept island off the west coast of Ireland, home to a community which lives in the past. Rose is a beautiful young woman, loved by all. Emer is her disfigured twin. She is consumed by jealousy, and a fiercely protective love for her son. Brigid, named after the island's saint, arrives from America, in search of a miracle. Because St Brigid's is no ordinary island. The islanders' hostility quickly melts when Brigid befriends the twins. But little do they realise that her single-minded passion will endanger everything they hold dear.
