Walk the Blue Fields Paperback
A long-haired woman moves into the priest's house and sets fire to his furniture.
That Christmas, the electricity goes out. A forester mortgages his land and goes off to a seaside town looking for a wife.
He finds a woman eating alone in the hotel. A farmer wakes half-naked and realises the money is almost gone. And in the title story, a priest waits on the altar for a bride and battles, all that wedding day, with his memories of a love affair.
In her long-awaited second collection, Claire Keegan observes an Ireland wrestling with its past.
