Summary
On hearing that Jackser, her childhood abuser, is seriously ill, Martha is elated, thinking that finally she will be able to watch him suffer. But in the hospital she sees a frightened, lonely old man and realises with a shock that he seems to regret his earlier actions. During her vigil, she is joined by Charlie, her little brother, then the ma and some of her other siblings. But as she sits with Jackser during his dying days, other memories come back to Martha - fleeting moments of concern and kindness, and a sense of closeness as he recalls his own tormented past in one of Ireland's industrial schools
