"Diarmuid Devine was a guilty prisoner of his own emotions and yearnings. At 37, settled in his ways, painfully shy and inhibited, he met a young girl who seemed to like him. Una Clarke, niece of a fellow instructor at a Catholic boys' school in Belfast, was warm, honest, and impulsive. But hadn't Dev heard that she was a Protestant, 'fast,' that she had been involved with a married man in Dublin? Yet Dev felt a door had opened for him." "A profoundly moving narrative of human love and human inadequacy."; 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall
