A lovely and haunting read, lyrically written, scenic, and alive with magic.
Brigid is named for a saint, but her powers are otherworldly. In search of a miracle, she moves to a remote Irish island where her ancestors made their home, a place once inhabited only by women and still filled with their relics. Once established in her family's abandoned home, she strikes up a relationship that could do her more harm than good.
I loved the focus on women and women's relationships, and the nature magic that spun through the whole story. I'll definitely be reading more of Carey's work.
The setting is a sparsely populated island off of Ireland. The people who reside here, live their lives by the rules of superstition and folklore. The atmosphere is often stormy and foreboding. The lines between myth and reality were blurry. I love this kind of story. It was a good read for me.
A women's novel, with meticulously realized characters and deft incorporation of magic.
I am so excited that Lisa Carey has written another book! I have been a big fan and have missed her greatly in the last few years. Can't wait to get this book when it is published in January.
