Description

Archaeologist Nuala unearths a skeleton and her ordered life starts to unravel. Digging into the mystery of the bones, can she handle the chaos of what she discovers? Based on personal experience, this is an uplifting and compelling story about OCD, dungarees and being weird but not a weirdo. 'Shockingly real... fresh and funny' **** (BroadwayWorld.com). 'Comic, deep, clever and insightful' **** (NorthWestEnd.co.uk). 'Genuine and original' **** (WithinHerWords.co.uk).
