Reseña del editor:

"My mother was never easy in the world of houses. She was a tinker, a traveler girl who had married a wealthy man. Her name was Agatha Sheehy....There are silences all around my mother's story." So begins The Nature of Water and Air, set on a patch of Irish coast where, amid a flurry of whispers, we meet Agatha's only surviving daughter, Clodagh. Determined to secure her mother's elusive love and the truth about her, Clodagh is swept into a relationship with a handsome, isolated man. He brings her to the heart of her mother's story, where she must confront the questions "Does a truth change love?" and "What madness will come from chasing a secret?" Powerfully sensitive, this startling debut novel about forbidden love will place Regina McBride among our most celebrated novelists.

Críticas:

Thomas Moran

author of "The Man in the Box"

McBride artfully evokes the brilliant beauty and the strange, brooding darkness that often dwell together in the Irish soul. "The Nature of Water and Air" honors the underappreciated art of genuine storytelling.



Brendan O'Carroll

author of the Agnes Browne trilogy

"The Nature of Water and Air" is delightful, lyrical, and beautifully sad.



Edna O'Brien

What distinguishes "The Nature of Wather and Air,.".is the precision of the language and the haunting power of the narrative.



"Kirkus"

Elegant prose distinguishes a first novel set in modern Ireland that reads like a reclaimed folktale...A fine debut, unsettling and magical.



Tillie Olsen

Evoking a raw and spirited Ireland, "The nature of Water and Air" is an astoundingly rich and lyrical novel about mothers and daughters, secrets and delusions, and the salve of love.



Peter Quinn

author of "Banished Children of Eve"

Filled with mystery and music, this is an astounding piece of storytelling

that combines the dense lyricism of great poetry with the unflinching clarity of great prose.
