Description
(First Edition, Autographed) (Shortlisted for the Giller Prize) Though best known for her Orange and Man Booker Prize finalist Room, Emma Donoghue has also given us award-winning historical fiction like Slammerkin and The Sealed Letter; here she combines all of her storytelling powers in the tale of a Victorian English nurse—trained by Florence Nightingale herself—sent to a small Irish village to uncover what must be a hoax. Onlookers are thronging to the cabin of 11-year-old Anna O'Donnell, who is said to have eaten nothing for four months. Lib Wright is to stay in Anna's bare room and monitor her, but the long hours she spends with the girl begin to erode all of her assumptions. Is the child a fraud, or a "living wonder"—or is something more sinister unfolding before Lib's eyes? We are thrilled to be able to offer Donoghue's psychological thriller in a first edition, autographed by the author.

"Outstanding.... Exploring the nature of faith and trust with heartrending intensity, Donoghue's superb novel will leave few unaffected."—Booklist (starred review)

"Donoghue demonstrates her versatility by dabbling in a wide range of literary styles in this latest novel.... The closely imagined, intricately drawn story possesses many of the same alluring qualities as her bestseller, Room.... Donoghue's engrossing novel is loaded with descriptions of period customs and 19th-century Catholic devotional objects and prayers ... [and] asks daring questions about just how far some might go to prove their faith."—Publishers Weekly (starred review)
