Abstract:

Three women in nineteenth-century Ireland are drawn together in the hope of rescuing a child from a superstitious community. Nora, bereft after the sudden death of her beloved husband, finds herself alone and caring for her young grandson, Micheal. Micheal cannot speak and cannot walk, and Nora is desperate to know what is wrong with him. What happened to the healthy, happy grandson she met when her daughter was still alive? Mary arrives in the valley to help Nora just as the whispers are spreading: the stories of unexplained misfortunes, of illnesses, and the rumors that Micheal is a changeling child who is bringing bad luck to the valley. Determined to banish the evil in Micheal, Nora and Mary enlist the help of the elderly Nance, a recluse and wanderer once revered by her neighbors for her healing powers but now condemned as a fraud and a threat by the new priest in town. She understands the magic of the old ways. And she might be able to help Micheal. As these three women are brought together in the hope of restoring Micheal, their world of folklore and belief, of rituals and stories, tightens around them. It will lead them down a dangerous path and force them to question everything they have ever known.
