Aengus lived in a vibrant new city, among charming new friends, with a thriving career. There was never any hint that, just a scratch below the surface of his world, lurked desolate emptiness. When his wife, Caitríona, is killed in a traffic accident, the thin veneer is suddenly and irredeemably ripped away.
And so he seeks out the only person who can give him back a little piece of Caitríona – the daughter they gave up for adoption some twenty years before. His search takes him home to Ireland and to the father with whom he has endured a fractured relationship, to old friends that he has carelessly left behind. He discovers a sense of belonging with people who will always be his own. In places long-forgotten. In dreams he once coveted but never dared to grasp.
Bad Things Happen is a dark tale of one man’s search for the light. Because when bad things happen, there can be no redemption without belonging.

We have no time and feel no need to look around, to take stock. We are, instead, consumed with living the next experience, seeking out the next opportunity.
