Shortlisted for the Walter Scott Prize 2017 County Kerry, Ireland, 1825. NORA, bereft after the sudden death of her beloved husband, finds herself alone and caring for her young grandson Micheal. Micheal cant speak and cant walk and Nora is desperate to kw what is wrong with him. What happened to the healthy, happy grandson she met when her daughter was still alive? MARY arrives in the valley to help Nora just as the whispers are spreading: the stories of unexplained misfortunes, of illnesses, and the rumours that Micheal is a changeling child who is bringing bad luck to the valley. NANCE's kwledge keeps her apart. To the new priest, she is a threat, but to the valley people she is a wanderer, a healer. Nance kws how to use the plants and berries of the woodland; she understands the magic in the old ways. And she might be able to help Micheal. As these three women are drawn together in the hope of restoring Micheal, their world of folklore and belief, of ritual and stories, tightens around them. It will lead them down a dangerous path, and force them to question everything they have ever kwn. Based on true events and set in a lost world bound by its own laws, The Good People is Hannah Kent's startling new vel about absolute belief and devoted love. Terrifying, thrilling and moving in equal measure, this long-awaited follow-up to Burial Rites shows an author at the height of her powers.
