What demons sit on YOUR shoulder?

Andrea McNamara, daughter of Catholic parents with a lifetime of 'protest' behind them, and granddaughter of an Irish matriarch, has finished university and is looking forward to starting her new life.

But then she meets Chris, her former boyfriend, and self-styled classics geek and atheist.

The meeting prompts Andrea to look back at her her final year at high school when she met Chris for the first time and when her life began to change in ways both challenging and unexpected.

This brief but powerful (and expertly constructed) novel is at once a love story and an acknowledgement of the part belief systems of various kinds (religious and pagan) still play in the lives of an ostensibly secular pair of young lovers.

Bill Nagelkerke, from New Zealand, has a highy distinctive voice and approach to constructing his fiction. ACHUKAbooks launched its digital list with THE FIELD, Bill's short novella about a girl who is visited by Marian apparitions. We're delighted to be publishing a second and longer work by him now.
