    Interesting Historical Read

    I received this book courtesy of Goodreads Giveaway and thoroughly enjoyed “The Good People”. The book takes place in Ireland in the early 1800s. Times are difficult for everything including lack of crops (food), weather, and medical care (or lack thereof). The book catches your attention right from the start. Nora’s husband and daughter die leaving her to care for her four-year-old grandson, Micheal, who is unable to walk or communicate. When he was two, he had no difficulties and his grandmother, Nora wants to find out what is wrong with him. Nora believes he has been taken by The Good People and she needs to get Micheal back. Nora hires Mary, a teenager whose family is unable to feed all of their children. Mary helps Nora with Micheal and seems more caring to the handicapped child than his Grandmother. The community is entrenched in superstitions. Any negative news is often blamed on The Good People. Nance, who has healing powers, also has the “knowledge” of the Good People (also called Fairies). The people in the community come frequently to Nance for medical treatment such as a midwife, infertility, and minor ailments. The book does an excellent job portraying the harsh times people had to endure. Healing, superstitions, religion, spousal abuse, poverty and loss are prevalent throughout the book. Character and situation development were outstanding. Insight into the challenging times in Ireland in the 1800s is well done. The reader has a clear perception on life during these times. I recommend this book for anyone who enjoys a good historical read. Hands down, you’ll learn something in this book.
