Josephine Edna O'Brien, DBE (born 15 December 1930) is an Irish novelist, memoirist, playwright, poet and short story writer

Josephine Edna O'Brien, DBE (born 15 December 1930) is an Irish novelist, memoirist, playwright, poet and short story writer. Philip Roth described her as "the most gifted woman now writing in English", while the former President of Ireland Mary Robinson cited her as "one of the great creative writers of her generation".

This richly peopled, compellingly readable book explores woman in her many roles - as mystic, mother, daughter and lover. O'Brien's fans have waited 11 years for this passionate and lyrical novel of lost and regained love, of tragedy and salvation. Anna, the yearning narrator, is tormented by a stormy past and escapes to a lush Spanish island hoping to forget a tempestuous love affair.

D'Arcy guides O'Brien's heroine to a posh resort hotel, where bought sensuality and a haunting chorus of puritanical whispers from servants and townsmen form the background for what will truly be our woman's final love: passion for a servant girl, half waif, half cherished ideal daughter, who in the end is murdered by her estranged husband amid cries of "".
