Staff Pick: “This book was sadly and quietly lost in lockdown publications. It is O’Callaghan’s second foray into fiction and you do not want to miss it! It tells the story of Paddy & his stowaway daughter Kitty as they drive from England to France in his lorry. On the way, we learn about their family secrets, the tensions and rivalries, their aches and desires, taking us slowly but surely to the revealing end.” Marta

Heartbroken after a long, painful love affair, a man takes a job driving a haulage lorry through France. Travelling with him is a secret passenger – his daughter. Twenty-something, unkempt, off the rails. With a week on the road together, man and girl must attempt to restore themselves and each other, and to repair a relationship that is at once fiercely loving and deeply scarred. As the pair journey down the motorways and through the service stations of France, a devastating picture reveals itself: a story of grief, of shame, and of love in all its complex, dark and glorious manifestations.
