Sassy solicitor Helene has spent the last few years getting what she wants and who she wants. Rising through the ranks of a high profile Dublin law firm, she has professional as well as sexual recognition. Her story is set against the last groans of the celtic tiger. She works among, has relationships with, and represents the movers and shakers who created it. Privy to the machinations of the top legal firm, Helene goes on a voyage of self discovery of both her own motivations and those of her profession. We learn how she rationalises the two, and whether they can ever be reconciled. As truths gradually emerge in her private life, an unstoppable chain of events are set in motion in her professional life. Do the legal structures so long the buttresses of all she believed protect her? Can she defend a profession that has nurtured her, or will she bite the hand that feed her? Josepha Madigan segues with ease between the legal and emotional worlds of her heroine, Helene. Set amongst recent Irish recognisable legal scandals, Helene’s tragic story of love and loss is a fictionalised expose of the moral dilemmas we frequently address. This is a no holds barred insider and explosive view of the Dublin legal scene. On this voyage of discovery with Helene, we learn not only a bit more about choices we all make, but also how a life can compound or confront these mistakes.
