well will bring about a miracle and bring her a child and the Fromentin peace she has craved all her lifeBrigid befriends a stray and half starved dog whom she names Rua She is her constant companion She loved that stupid creature as if it were her own child and not a dog at all But Brigid has come to an island with a dying way of life one that is soon to end for the islanders are to be relocated to the mainland the sea looks like a calm blue walkwayretending as though it never tries to trap them in rage This is a story rich with Irish folklore about strong and resilient Irish women A novel which Punishing My Slutty Little Sister poses the uestion If you want and crave something strong enough can YOU MAKE it happen Historical fiction liberally doused throughout with magical realism with themes of motherhood superstition betrayal suspicion endurance loneliness and grief When something is stolen from you it is sometimes easier to act like you never wanted it in the firstlace As a background tale the novel also tells of the history of the Celtic saint Brigid and her colony of medieval Blood+: Russian Rose, Volume 2 pagan nuns that once inhabited the island The nuns lived a harsh and brutal existence residing inairs in beehive shaped stone huts called clochans Like the rotagonists of the novel they too were women fending for themselves in dire circumstances There is a striking similarity between anticipation and dread Written with beautiful language and turns of hrase the story causes the reader to become enraptured by the women the island and even St Brigid herself The author took five years to write The stolen child which was inspired by Kieran Concannon s documentary film Death of an island Highly recommendedI wish to thank HarperCollins Friedrich Barbarossa (Gestalten Des Mittelalters Und Der Renaissance) (German Edition) publishers whorovided me with a digital copy of this novel via Edelweiss A erfect addition to my Reading Ireland month entries On an island off the coast of Ireland an American woman comes to live and claim the house of her deceased uncle and she comes to find St Brigids holy well This is about survival in a harsh environment friendship love superstition and myth In the acknowledgements the author mentions a filmDeath of an Island being the inspiration for the lot I watched it right after I finished the book and it was exactly how I ictured the island Too dark for me but the writing is very good St Brigid s Island off the west coast of Ireland the home of generations of families families that have been touched by the myths and folklore of Ireland The home of fairies and changelings superstition and belief in the old ways Emer and Rose twins now in their twenties Rose happy and fair has given birth to many sets of twins Emer dark brooding a touch of her hand causes hopelessness in all but her twin Married to brothers Emer only one son a son she watches over stringent This was one of those books where I just wanted to rush home to read loudly grumbling at any responsibilities that stole time away from readingBrigid has not had an easy life She has been an orphan a midwife and a child bride and now at nearly 40 she is infertile and desperate to be a motherShe arrives on St Bridget s Island off the coast of Ireland in the late 1950 s an island that has always been art of Bridget s life in the form of bed time stories told by her mother Fantastical stories about fairies and a magic water well urported to heal the sick and help barren mothersBridget uickly finds out that the the islanders are not very friendly towards outsiders And in the centre of island life are two sisters Rose is beautiful blessed with love and Many Children Emer Is Her children Emer is her opposite and worse still she is cursed by the strange currents that run through her fingers She is fiercely rotective of her only son convinced that he will be stolen from her by the fairiesEmer and Bridget s sexuality identity and limits are tested and the story does not allow you to give your sympathy to only one erson No one is just good or badThe magical realism was handled expertly and the island itself is beautiful yet dangerous Both a refuge and a rison with lenty of room for darkness to take holdI almost never read the author note at the end of books but this time it was worth it She expands on the real island that this book is based upon and as an added bonus I learned about the real St Bridget along the wayHighly recommended for lovers of Irish folklore and magical realism There is a striking similarity between anticipation and dreadI adored this book and just want to say thanks to Diane for her wonderful review that made me urchase The Stolen ChildAs the author Learn English: A Beginner's Guide for ESL Learners points out in her afterword this is a book about evacuated islands sisters witch burning healers lighthouses fairies saints and lesbianism The whole is than it sarts these elements combined to create something truly magical and uniue The two main characters Emer and Brigid are so genuine that I sometimes hated Emer so much I wanted to slap herand in the next Who Is Gloria Steinem? paragraph my heart would be breaking for her again The setting a small little island just of the coast of Ireland wasainted so vividly that you could see it clearly I loved learning about the evacuation of some of these islands as well as the legend of st Brigid of Ireland I enjoyed the fairy tales throughout but be warned this is a dark book do not expect your normal brand of light and fluffy magical realism Both the fairy tales and the real life happenings are uite often bleak This is an otherworldly tale about desperate needy love and how we can choose if we will allow it to embitter us or not My only criticism is that I wished it ended differently I would have referred a open ended conclusion but I loved the rest too much to deduct any stars for that I will "definitely be reading by this author 35 stars "be reading by this author 35 stars very good read Irish folklore changelings fairies St Brigid The women left on the island of St Brigid are being evacuated all their men have erished to the sea and they are being moved to government housing on the mainland We then go back in time to hear the legends of the island children that are taken by the fairies or other ones Brigid the American returns to the island in hope for healing from the special well her history is one steeped in mystery about the other ones taking her mother being replaced by a changeling she has special healing owers in her hands Emer is also one that was artially taken and is an unhappy bitter woman anxious to get off the island so they don t take her beloved son Brigid s history and her reason for returning to the island was a very interesting art Emer s history as well was good to read It starts to drag or become too longslightly repetitive towards the middle to the end But overall a very good read Carey s writing is like butter I can actually fit this into the Litsy Reading Challenge for the suare With an LGBT relationship so that s a bonus. Trange abilities or erhaps because of them Emer fears that she won’t be able to save her young son Niall from a growing threat Yet Brigid has a gift too even remarkable than Emer’s As months Corazones solitarios pass and Brigid carves out alace on the island and in the sisters’ lives a complicated web of betrayal fear and desire culminates in one shocking night that will change the island and its inhabitants foreverSteeped in Irish history and lore The Stolen Child is a mesmerizing descent into old world beliefs and a captivating exploration of desire myth motherhood and love in all its forms. Oth rotagonists troubled ast and how each become at least for a short time a better version of themselves through each other I liked this bit of the story answering grief and sadness with love However towards the end the story takes a rather evil twist that led to a rather uestionable ending blessing evil and welcoming death I feel as though being the dark story that it is the narration could have been a bit less mundane and repetitive There were many flashbacks descriptions and auses in the narration with not enough suspense or storytelling in the Now Pitching, Bob Feller: A Baseball Memoir presentOverall The Stolen Child takes readers on a dark mythical journey far away to a remote island where love is not always the answer and good does not alwaysrevail Wickedly strange and abnormally intriguing I can see what readers mean when they call it a Variance (Raise Your Weapon, page turner as it was for me But this was not a simpleage turner It was raw to the core and left me feeling exposed and troubled not really knowing how to react or if I should even be recommending readers to this book The Stolen Child brings together universes magical and real blurring the Mermaid pages with emotion and mystical language A truly conversational and debatable read definitely not reread material for me Because I once lived on the western coast of Ireland and because author Lisa Cary moved to the island of Inishbofin off Ireland s west coast to research her first book I ve been following her career for many years I ve loved each of her four Irish themed novels and eagerly awaited the February 7th release of her latest The Stolen Child It is a story much like Ireland herself deceptive in its riddled nuances than the sum of itsarts The soul of the story creeps up on you It takes Hochzeit mit Hindernissen patience and willingness to allow the magic to take hold and when it does it is not byossession The Stolen Child spins the kind of magic that lulls at the core of your being affects your consciousness waits for you to iece it together until you understand There is little overt in this languid novel which again is much like Ireland It is a desperate story through and through yet in the hands of author Lisa Carey it resonates with mythical beauty gives you a sense of timelessness and holds you fast by its earthy brass tacks In itch After Effects Expressions perfect language Carey wields dialogue specific to the west coast of Ireland s desolate environs It is an understated language upside down to outsiders but once your ear attunes you are affronted by the superfluousness of other tongues Allrimary characters in The Stolen Child are women They live cut off from the mainland of Ireland s west coast twelve miles out upon rocky wind swept St Brigid s Island during the one year time frame of May 1959 to May 1960 It is a timeframe fraught with the looming inevitability of the islanders evacuation from their homeland with its generational customs and ties to the stark reality of life on the mainland with its glaring and soulless mod cons Most of the characters are conflicted about leaving the island save for the sinister Emer who has her own selfish agenda centered upon her only child Niall Her sister Rose is the sunny earth mother unflappable sort who only sees the buried good in Emer whereas everyone one else on the island shuns her for her malefic dark ways which they intuit as dark art Emer has one foot on the island and the other in the recesses of the fairies manipulative underworld It is the American blow in Brigid the woman with a complicated ast who has her own ties to the island from her banished mother that cracks the carapace of Emer s guarded and angry countenance Together the air explore an illicit relationship but when it snaps back Emer retaliates with a force that effects the entire island and twists her worst fears into fate The Stolen Child is magnificently crafted for it is a sweeping story set on a cloistered island which has nothing to recommend it save for its uays its view and its eponymous holy well This is a novel rife with character study that is uintessentially Irish yet applicable far afield In themes of motherhood hope desperation and hopelessness the characters take what little they have and wrestle it into making do It is the ower of steel intention that drives this story and the reader receives it from all conceivable angles I recommend The Stolen Child to all who love Ireland to all who love an exceptional creative story and to all who love language used at its finest All raise to the author Lisa Carey I eagerly await the next book Steeped in Irish history and lore The Stolen Child is a mesmerizing descent into old world beliefs and a captivating exploration of desire myth motherhood and love in all its forms We ve been told that the Irish are a superstitious lot This is even true of rural Ireland of sixty years ago when this novel is set A fictional island
