Detailed book overview
“Get ready to laugh.”
It’s Ireland in the 1970s.
Margaret McCabe is still a virgin in her twenties. Contraception is illegal.
When she finally does it with Oliver, who has very little consideration for the Irish perspectives on sex, Margaret is convinced that she has found true liberation.
Upon starting to live in the same house with her first love, she soon learns that liberation means a lot more than to insubordinate a normal middle-class upbringing.
When trouble brews in paradise and Oliver's mother and brother come into the picture, change simply becomes inevitable.

It’s a discovery that he simply can’t ignore.
This newfound knowledge is however deadly, as leaders have for the longest time sacrificed a lot to protect it.
Zendo’s curiosity will however not be deferred, as he sets off on an exciting adventure.
