— Irish Book of the Year Finalist! A whimsical, touching debut about loneliness, friendship and hope... Vivian doesn't feel like she fits in - and never has. As a child, she was so whimsical that her parents told her she was "left by fairies." Now, living alone in Dublin, the neighbors treat her like she's crazy, her older sister condescends to her, social workers seem to have registered her as troubled, and she hasn't a friend in the world. So, she decides it's time to change her life: She begins by advertising for a friend. Not just any friend. She wants one named Penelope. Meanwhile, she roams the city, mapping out a new neighborhood every day, seeking her escape route to a better world, the other world her parents told her she came from. And then one day someone named Penelope answers her ad for a friend. And from that moment on, Vivian's life begins to change. Debut author Caitriona Lally offers readers an exhilaratingly fresh take on the Irish love for lyricism, humor, and inventive wordplay in a book that is, in itself, deeply charming, and deeply moving. From the Hardcover edition.

Directed to victims of domestic assault, this volume describes the feelings experienced by many women who are in relationships involving physical and psychological abuse and presents specific ways in which a woman can realistically and responsibly respond to the violence. The text uses the personal accounts of women who have been in abusive relationships and the approaches to suffering and recovery involved in the principles of Morita and Naikan therapies. Individual sections focus on the characteristics of a good relationship, effective ways of handling emotions, the decision to leave a relationship, and methods of surviving the past and starting life over again. The text also explains appreciation and respect, redirection, making choices, expectations, and building a partnership in a new relationship. The discussion rests on the view that no woman should live in fear or experience violent behavior.
