Review: The Good People

4/5 – Very good

Life in the Irish countryside when people were full of superstitions which played a huge part in their lives. The fairies possessing people and stopping chickens laying, cows not yielding milk, crops failing. The women gossiping spreading rumours. The sadness and lack of understanding of life and the troubles it brings. The trial of 3 women for possible murder when it was really fear and superstition.

I found it a rollercoaster of emotions. Well written with a good understanding of how people lived and how superstition ruled them.
