The Secret Scripture

by Sebastian Barry

This book was a worthy shortlisted title for the Man Booker Prize in 2008. The opening few pages did not draw me in at first but I am glad that I persevered second time round. The characters speak very convincingly, especially Roseanne and Dr. Greene. The book is beautifully written and both of these characters are drawn with respect and intuitive sympathy. It is a book of its time.

I absolutely loved this book. Hooked after the first few pages. Beautifully written. Recommended to relatives and friends. Feeback was positive.
