The Good People

by Hannah Kent

Some folk are born different, Nance. They are born on the outside of things, with a skin a little thinner, eyes a little keener to what goes unnoticed by most. Their hearts swallow more blood than ordinary hearts; the river runs differently for them...

Reviewed by Ben at Angus & Robertson Bookworld:
Burial Rites marked Hannah Kent out as a phenomenal writer and this novel has confirmed that yet again. 

The Good People is a story of three brilliant women oppressed by church, law and landscape. It’s rural Ireland in 1825 and these women, particularly Nance Roche the valley’s Doctress, are steeped in Gaelic idioms, customs and superstitions. But it seems that the novelist has gone so deep in researching and finessing this story that it doesn’t read like historical fiction at all. It reads like award-winning contemporary fiction – brilliantly crafted characters in an incredible emotional and moral struggle. This is nothing short of a sensational novel and sure to be a critical and commercial success story.
