Product description

From the bestselling author of The American Girl
January 1982: In the village of Kilmitten, the C rossan family are holding their annual party during the biggest snowstorm Ireland has seen in decades. By the end of the night, the parish priest, Father Leo Galvin, is dead.
The lives of four teenagers - Tom, C onor, Tess and Nina - who had been drinking beer and smoking in a shed at the back of the house, will never be the same. But one of them carries a secret from that night that he has never shared. The friends go on to lead very different, separate lives - some quiet, others in the media
spotlight - but the four remain connected by what happened during the time of the big snow. Now, as the thirty-fifth anniversary of Father Galvin's murder approaches, C onor, now a senior police officer, has become obsessed with the crime his father failed to solve. He believes that Tom can help identify Father Galvin's killer. But does Tom wish to break his silence? His dilemma draws the four friends back together, forcing them to question their lives and to confront their differences. But only Tom can decide whether Kilmitten's secret will finally be revealed.
