Content descriptions

Summary, etc.: Three women in nineteenth-century Ireland are drawn together in the hope of rescuing a child from a superstitious community, determined to rid itself of the strange and unknowable. As the trio's situation grows more dire, their folkloric practices become increasingly daring - culminating in a stunning and irreversible act that will put all their lives in danger. Terrifying, thrilling, and wholly original, this is a startling examination of absolute belief and superstition taken to their extremes, of the universal yearning to belong, and of love, both tender and harsh.
