Description

From the author of Burial Rites comes this acclaimed novel of historical fiction. Based on true events in nineteenth-century Ireland, Hannah Kent's startling new novel tells the story of three women, drawn together to rescue child from a superstitious community. Nora, bereft after the death of her husband, finds herself alone and caring for her grandson MicheAl, who can neither speak nor walk. A handmaid, Mary, arrives to help NOra just as rumors begin to spread that MicheAl is a changeling child who is bringing bad luck to the valley. Determined to banish evil, Nora and Mary enlist the help of Nance, an elderly wanderer who understands the magic of the old ways. Set in a lost world bound by its own laws,The Good People is a startling novel about absolute belief and devoted love. Terrifying, thrilling and moving in equal measure, this follow-up to Burial Rites shows an author at the height of her powers.
