Read in July, 2010

Three novels written between 1960 and 1964 about two young women from rural Ireland who leave home, meeting with varied fates. The first novel is very atmospheric with much in the way of rural poverty, alcoholism and the strictures of the Catholic church. The second explores a needy, obsessive love; and the third the contrasting lives of two no-longer-innocent friends coping in London.
