Two gripping novels full of insight and empathy explore the complexities of family life and parenthood. Alex Hyde’s Violets is about two mothers: one who decides to give her baby up for adoption and another who chooses to adopt. Claire Keegan’s Small Things Like These conjures up the world of an Irish man facing a midlife crisis, whose outlook is challenged when he encounters a young mother locked in a convent coal shed. Hyde and Keegan speak to Chris Power today.
