I read a review of this novel that said the beautiful writing got in the way of the story. I do have to agree, but this is a wonderful book. Sebastian Barry has a dense, description filled style. This is a story told backwards about a womans life- I highly recommend anything Barry writes (especially the Secret Scripture).
