DESCRIPTION:

"Poulnabrone no pre-fab niche" according to Joseph A. Aisenberg. [at a friend's suggestion I found this book: here's what he says]Welcome to the small Irish village of Poulnabrone, a rustic town where everyone knows one another but no one quite knows what's wrong. But something definitely is.One of the most enchanting things about this book--clear early on--is its easy mingling of wackiness and earnestness, the former sneaking up on you when it slips out from under the generally overriding latter: setting is central and the power of place works its effects upon its inhabitants; for instance we see how age and neglec. "Great Read" according to Mick G. Before I enter into the review I would love to mention the amazing use of descriptives I enjoyed within this story. The crisp cunch of grass beneath feet as you walk, rasp of gravel playing under you shoe to the kerplunk of buildings and roads surrendering life to delapidation - signs of an extremely talented author.The story is set in the quaint Irish village of Poulnabrone which has seen better and happier days but is now succumbing to the ravages of time and decaying from busier earlier days.The townfolk have to decide whether to solve each problem .

Caring for her father brings both comfort and angst, but it is her daughter, Tara, that exercises her, so that she rails at her modern notions and pagan ways.

Overwhelmed by an arbitrary moment of violence, he turns inwards and ultimately on the town itself. "'Face facts, will you,' she kept telling me 'What happens here means nothing and never will.'"Cornelius Conlon has been forever growing old. She's a striking girl, and everyone is drawn to her, for it is as though she has "appeared from the earth and remained speckled, splashed with the freckles of mud that produced her variegated complexion, her colours yet to blend with the work of the summer sun." The drawstrings of her heart bind her, bringing both joy and misery and nightmares that come, "too concrete, too sudden". The cracks in the walls of her home run through her heart.
