The Private Parts of Women

Inis has run away from her husband and children. Her new neighbour Trixie is eighty-four years old and a hymn-singing Salvation Army veteran. Trixie’s life is one of apparent calm but beneath the surface lie not one but three different personalities. One of them is very private. And very dangerous.
