Based on true events in nineteenth century Ireland, Hannah
Kent's startling new novel tells the story of three women,
drawn together to rescue a child from a superstitious community.
Nora, bereft after the death of her husband, finds herself
alone and caring for her grandson Micheal, who can neither
speak nor walk. A handmaid, Mary, arrives to help Nora just
as rumors begin to spread that Micheal is a changeling child
who is bringing bad luck to the valley. Determined to banish
evil, Nora and Mary enlist the help of Nance, an elderly
wanderer who understands the magic of the old ways.
Set in a lost world bound by its own laws, THE GOOD PEOPLE
is Hannah Kent's startling new novel about absolute belief
and devoted love. Terrifying, thrilling and moving in equal
measure, this follow-up to Burial Rites shows an author at
the height of her powers.
