The Good People

Nominated for the Walter Scott Prize for Historical Fiction 2017

'Exceptional . . . Even better than Burial Rites' Sunday TimesIn rural Ireland, 1825, three women gather to save a child.It all begins with rumours: stories of unexplained misfortunes. Nóra, mourning the deaths of her husband and daughter, knows the whispers are about her grandson. Four-year-old Micheál can no longer speak or walk, and people are saying that he is a changeling, bringing bad luck to the valley.In desperation Nóra begs the help of two others, Mary and Nance. Together, the women will do anything to cure the little boy, but as their world of folklore and ritual tightens around them, it threatens to blur the line between mercy and murder . . .
