I was lucky enough to receive an ARC of this book through Goodreads Giveaways.

I finished this collection of short stories in three sittings--only put it down to get off the treadmill or to sleep. I found myself needing to know what happened to characters in each story. She expresses such a range of emotions with so few words. I will admit I didn't want to feel some of these emotions ("The Hunt"). Really appreciated the follow up comments after each story and the final afterword--both shared more background information that added to the stories. I've read and enjoyed many of Donoghue's books but I like the historical fiction books the best so I appreciated that this one too was historical fiction.
