Had problems reading.
So many sayings & words used not my language.

Wow!! I devoured Grace - a wrenching, bleak, compelling, gorgeously-written book about the Irish famine, life/death, haves/have nots, courage/fear, resilience/despair. Did I mention that the writing is astounding?!! At a climactic point in the novel, I think I stopped breathing. Not to be missed.

The story of Grace Coyle's journey through Ireland's An Gorta Mor. Haunting and lyrical it is the most devastating look into that terrible time without the need for any political comment.

Being familiar with this author, I knew the writing in this book would be excellent and I thought the story sounded wonderful. As it turns out, I didn't fully appreciate this book until a few weeks after I finished it. It is dense and somber and occasionally slow and I struggled to stay with it at times. Yet I haven't stopped thinking about it since I finished it and have picked it up several times to re-read certain sections of it, enjoying it much more the second time around. It really is an excellent story and I would recommend it to anyone who appreciates strong literary writing.
