(From the publisher):
Through the eyes of Dolores, the youngest of Frankie and Mary Gauci's six daughters, we're offered a keyhole view of a Maltese family in Cardiff, Wales, that is singeing at the edges. Dolores presents an unsparing portrayal of the underworld of 1960s Tiger Bay, the coarse sensuality of life among the docks, the gaming rooms and cafes, the crumbling homes and burning secrets that tear this family apart. Thirty years later, a reunion with her estranged sisters brings Dolores face-to-face with the betrayals that have haunted her past, where the truth is finally and tragically played out.
