Summary: Under a crumbling roof in 1990s Ireland, Helen and five other friends and loved ones wait impatiently as her brother, Declan, dies of AIDS. "The Blackwater Lightship" is a novel about morals and manners and the clashes of culture and personality. Yet most of all, it's a novel about stories and their incomparable capacity to heal the deepest wounds.
