Summary
The mythology and history of the Irish people, from the time of the potato famine and the ensuing Canadian emigration, is the backdrop for this magical story of love and loss.
Critique
A haunting and beautful saga. Lyric prose. One of the best reads of the year. Highly recommend. Beautifully tragic. For lovers of language and literate reads. Slow-paced. Well-written. More for serious/literate fiction readers.
