Virgin and the Boy
Ireland. A place for the mad, the violent and the erotic? Never. But think again. What happens when a rising rock star who really believes in herself meets a boy fourteen years her junior? What happens when that rock star becomes the focus for a self-styled group of Christian fascists who will stop at nothing to control the lives of others?
Virgin, aka Ginnie Maloney, is the rock star. Liberal, extravagant and uninhibited, she is determined to rise to international stardom. Luke O'Regan is the nineteen-year-old who will follow her anywhere - whatever the consequences. When a tragic event draws them together the couple make the mistake of believing that freedom has no price and no moral dimension. What happens is a powerful account of tender, obsessive love, but equally the story of one woman's survival despite the most punishing odds.
