Product description


'A wool-soaked odyssey on the Iveragh peninsula I could feel and smell the rain all the way through, and when the sun broke in now and then, I felt that too... tremendous and moving' * The Irish Times * 'An elegiac story of loss and valediction... Woolfian echoes pulse through haunting the reader.' * Guardian * 'A gently absorbing novel... wistful but never morose - tugging the heartstrings without milking the double bereavement at the novel s heart.' * Daily Mail * 'A ravishing tale of an emotional journey in the wild beauty of Ireland... Read this book for the delicacy of its central story , the sheer delight of being led into the drama of this edge of the world with its landscape beaten by hectic weather and lit by unfiltered sunlight, and for the pleasure of Hubbard's intensely honed, sharply insightful story-telling.' -- Angela Neustatter 'Has a unique and beautiful emotive quality that shines through its delicately constructed prose in a love-letter to Ireland, memory and parenthood, taking advantage of its mature narrator to speak with resonance and depth. In a contemporary world of instant connections, Rainsongs returns to an age just prior to the boom of social media 2007 in an exploration of what it means to be truly alone... champions the role of literature in an increasingly disconnected modern world.' * London Magazine * 'A lyrical evocation of Ireland's fragile, ancient coastline reveals a poet's sensibility. This multi-layered story of love and loss, of a woman 'erased by grief', who finds solace in the heart of a community that is threatened from within, is exceptionally moving. This book will stay with you' -- Eleanor Fitzsimons 'A beautifully-written and evocative novel about grief and greed, art and life, isolation and emotion' -- Amanda Craig 'Ambitious and heartfelt... brings a poet's lyric gift to a compelling story.' -- Shena Mackay
