Donal Ryan is a prize-winning Irish writer (The Spinning Heart, The Thing About September).

All We Shall Know is a beautiful, perfectly pitched novel set in the traveller community in Ireland. Melody Shee is trapped in a loveless marriage. She is 33 and pregnant by an illiterate 16 year old boy, Martin Toppy, the 16 year old son of a famous Traveller. She is alone, ashamed and in trouble.

This is a powerful tale of adultery, loneliness, betrayal and female friendship. An extraordinary achievement.
