The Story Collector by Evie Gaughan
"Why only 267 ratings? 😮

I stumbled upon this book at the library and it ended up being an absolutely lovely story! It was very interesting to learn about Irish folklore. Although the pace was sometimes too slow and the plot was a bit predictable, the " Read more of this review »

Quotes by Evie Gaughan  (?)
Quotes are added by the Goodreads community and are not verified by Goodreads. (Learn more)

“Sometimes if you just let things happen, rather than trying to force them, they come easier.”
Evie Gaughan, The Mysterious Bakery On Rue De Paris

“He was like a different person, without that cloak of grief that he wore. Was he trying to keep the painful memories in or keep happiness out?”
Evie Gaughan, The Story Collector

“In my chest, a strange voice awakens and a song plays inside me a longing that is not mine. They say that ancestors, dead before their time, with young blood still in their veins, with great passion in their blood, with the sun still burning in their blood come, come to continue to live within us their unfinished lives. O, who knows, soul of mine, in which chest you will sing… ‘Silence’ by Lucian Blaga”
Evie Gaughan, The Heirloom
