 About the book:
It is 1985 in a small Irish town. During the weeks leading up to Christmas, Bill Furlong, a coal merchant and family man, faces into his busiest season. Early one morning, while delivering an order to the local convent, Bill makes a discovery which forces him to confront both his past and the complicit silences of a town controlled by the church.  This historical fiction novel is an international best seller and winner of the Orwell Prize.  Small Things Like These is a deeply affecting story of hope, quiet heroism, and empathy.
