So many literary figures, allusions in this novel. If possible, I wanted to find the source of “ say nothing.

The story of Cyril avery from 1945 when his 16 yr old mother is hauled out of her pew by a priest + publicly humiliated as a whore in mass, through to hid final days had me at times laughing out loud to blubbing + wiping my eyes. A wonderful book that highlights the hypocrisy of religion, the definition of love,+ the fragility of humanity. I cld talk abt it for days 5*.

Big thumbs up.

Thanks to Val M for reminding me why I love to read (after one of 'those' weeks that pretty much stomped all over my reading).

Rainy day, making it feel colder than the 41 degrees it is. Happy to be home with family, sipping coffee, snacking on ginger cooks,and reading about the Irish. I have spent so much time looking up/researching various people and , events - learning sooo much about the Irish. My father‘s grandfather came over to CT during the Great Starvation/Potato Famine. My mother‘s family came in through NewFoundland.

Librarybelle So glad you‘re finding this riveting! 2h

My #20in4 plan is set! My weekend is going to be making headway into these with the Starz Outlander marathon running in the background. I‘m rereading Echo in the Bone right now, and I haven‘t read Written in my Own Heart‘s Blood yet. So much Outlander.

keys_on_fire I need to reread the series as well, and requested Go Tell for Christmas. Maybe I‘ll just make 2022 ‘The Year of Outlander‘ 😂😂 2h
