Stunning novel

by lostqueenutah on Dec 9, 2010

In Ireland100-year old woman secretly writes the story of her life focusing on the "troubles" of the 1930s, the misunderstandings, deception and betrayal. One reviewer called it a "twisted fairy tale," and this examination of slippery memory involves roses and thorns and instead of a wicked fairy a deceptive priest, a unconscious quest and instead of sleep confinement in an asylum.



by fishken on Dec 3, 2009

An ingeniously-woven story of perception versus reality, caring versus callousness, and a startling ending that is wonderful. Masterfully written, as usual, by Sebastian Barry.
