Description

The much-anticipated new novel from the literary world's master of storytelling, Edna O'Brien.

A woman discovers that the foreigner she thinks will redeem her life is a notorious war criminal.

Vlad, a stranger from Eastern Europe masquerading as a healer, settles in a small Irish village where the locals fall under his spell. One woman, Fidelma McBride, becomes so enamored that she begs him for a child. All of that world is shattered when Vlad is arrested, and his identity as a war criminal is revealed.

Fidelma, disgraced, flees to England and seeks work among the other migrants displaced by wars and persecution. But it is not until she confronts him-her nemesis-at the tribunal in the Hague, that her physical and emotional journey reaches its breathtaking climax.

The Little Red Chairs is a story about love, and the endless search for it. It is also a story about mankind's fascination with evil and how long and crooked the road towards home is.
