Caravan of The Lost and Left Behind

The novel is about Eva an Irish traveller who returns to Ireland to try to reconnect with her daughter Caitlin who she left there years before. She takes her son Torin, as he is implicated in a stabbing and we follow the entanglement of Torin and Caitlin as they try to negotiate their relationship in the aftermath of Eva’s actions.

The novel looks at notions of family and flight, belonging and secrets and their unravelling, notions of displacement between rural and city environments. It is about the turmoil and dissonance that can occur when there is a rupture between living in one of the two places and having to form a new life elsewhere.
