Is there such a thing as a perfect marriage?
David thought so. But when his wife Mary Rose dies suddenly he has to think again. In reliving their twenty years together David sees that the ground beneath them had shifted and he simply hadn't noticed. Or had chosen not to.
Figuring out who Mary Rose really was and the secrets that she kept - some of these hidden in plain sight - makes David wonder if he really knew her. Did he even know himself?
Nothing But Blue Sky is a precise and tender story of love in marriage - a gripping examination of what binds couples together and of what keeps them apart.
'What a beautiful novel ... elegant, understated, subtly powerful, and rings so perfectly true that it is easy to forget that this is a work of fiction. There are particular moments that keep occurring to me unbidden at the oddest times - beautiful, poignant moments, drawn with such quiet power. And that quiet power is alive and at work on every page' Donal Ryan
'Gentle and triumphant, MacMahon offers us a novel steeped in beautiful prose and poignant tenderness' Anne Griffin, author of When All Is Said
