This debut novel made me curl up in a chair for 2 days, becoming enamored with these characters & places. This beautifully crafted book blend ancient Irish mythology & folklore with the crustiness & elemental nature of Island life and are reflected and reverberate in the story of outcasts Oona & Enda. This book catches and holds the winds that pull and buffet the west of Ireland and the souls that inhabit it. The Island Child belongs on the shelf next to John B Keane's The Field. ~ Reviewed by Maeve Noonan
