Summary
When Tess Lohan is seven, living on a 1950s western Ireland estate, her mother passes away, and a household once loving deteriorates into grim, resentful silences. For a time, Tess loses her voice, which enhances her capacity for quiet. Though she's a gifted listener, Tess never discovers how to express the enormity of how and what she feels. This inward silence accompanies her to convent school; to Dublin, where she begins a nursing career; and in 1962 to the United States, where she falls in love with David, a handsome lawyer from Dublin. With him, Tess conceives Theo, a magical boy who will grow up fatherless and increasingly bitter toward his mother. While Tess's gifts for feeling draw people to her, then pushes them away, her sad, lonely life is authentic and beautiful
