Never expect anything cheerful from William Trevor but this was definitely the most gloomy book of 2010 so far. In 1921 the Gault family have to leave their big house in Ireland because they have become so unpopular in the district, but Lucy (a child at the beginning) doesn't want to go. Very good, but heart-rending!
