    Lovely Writing

    I had the pleasure of meeting the author and her young daughter on a trip to Ireland earlier this year. Very modestly, after a period of conversation about the Blasket Islands, she told me she'd published a book of her stories. When I got home, imagine my surprise when I Googled her name and discovered she'd done several interviews about this book and had received some glowing reviews.

    If you've ever been to the Dingle Peninsula in Ireland--or if you've only considered it--you must read this book. Fennelly weaves a tale of both sorrow and pleasure, sprinkling in unique points of history of the islands that I otherwise would not have learned. Having been in such close proximity to the Blaskets, with her elegantly descriptive style, Fennelly transported me back to that magical place at the end of the world.
