ς ατυχίες ασθένειες αλλά και φήμες που θέλουν τον Μίχολ να σπέρνει την κακοτυχία στην κοιλάδαΑποφασισμένες να απαλλαγούν από το κακό και να βοηθήσουν τον Μίχολ η Νόρα και η Μαίρη επιστρατεύουν τη βοήθεια της Νανς μιας ηλικιωμένης περιπλανώμενης γυναίκας που κατέχει τη γνώση και τα μυστήρια της παλιάς μαγείαςΚαθώς οι τρεις γυναίκες ελπίζουν να επαναφέρουν τον Μίχολ ο ιδιαί. The book opens with the death of Nora's husband Martin Nora is now left to be the sole caretaker of her grandson a four year old that can neither talk nor walk screams constantly at night and it hard to pacify Grief stricken Nora manages to convince herself that he is not her real grandson but rather a changeling left in his place by the fairies She will do anything to get her real grandson back Nance is a healer but is also said to know the ways of the fairiesIt is 1825 in Ireland and superstition and the old ways are still prominent but the local priest is making inroads on the belief patterns of the villagers Soon these two belief systems will clash and things will never be the same Atmospherically dark the subject is dark as well Kent turns her hand to another true case in the past and does it ably Her descriptions as in her first book pulls the reader into this dark and tragic time Grief can take many turns and in this book the one it takes is uite horrible and not easy to read Yet her writing and her prose is once again outstanding though I did feel at times it was somewhat overdone Also found it repetitive in some instances and felt at times that this hindered the storytelling and the pace It is however another unforgettable book an impactful one not easy to forget The Wonder has the same darkness and the Irish setting though not the same subject and The Stolen child is another book that deals with changeling and fairies If you liked either of those one should also find much to admire in this I did Can't uite get it out of my headARC from publisherPublishes in the US in September by Little Brown

REVIEW Ú eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB º Hannah Kent

The Good Peopleτερος κόσμος τους με τα έθιμα τα πιστεύω και τις τελετουργίες δημιουργεί γύρω τους έναν ασφυκτικό κλοιό· θα οδηγηθούν σ’ένα επικίνδυνο μονοπάτι και θα αναγκαστούν να αμφισβητήσουν όλα όσα γνωρίζουνΤοποθετημένο σ’ έναν χαμένο κόσμο που υπακούει στους δικούς του κανόνες oι Καλοί της Hannah Kent είναι ένα εντυπωσιακό μυθιστόρημα για την απόλυτη πίστη και τη γεμάτη αφοσίωση αγάπ?. This is an excellent book beautifully written and very atmospheric It is also very similar to Burial Rites so if you liked that you will probably like this tooAgain the book is based on a real life story and this time is carried along on the superstitions and beliefs of Irish country folk with very little education and a long history of believing in fairies the Good People of the title Not that there is any good about them since they are blamed for every bad thing that happens from sickness to bad crops to cows producing less milk than usualAs with her first book this one is full of poverty hunger discomfort dirt and darkness I grieved for poor little Michael and his miserable life And even though I hated all the adults for the terrible things they did I felt sorry for them to for being reduced to that way of life When a boiled potato and a cup of goat's milk is a satisfactory meal things are toughObviously a very emotive book as I still want to go in there and pull little Michael out and give him a better life Highly recommended although personally I would like it if the author would pull herself out of the peat bogs and the cold for her next book
