Hannah Kent has an uncanny ability to write about being a woman, the pain and the bitterness and the effort of it. She's also exceptional in creating a setting for her stories - in many parts of the book I felt I was actually in Ireland in the early 1800s. Lots of moments where I teared up as well (especially Kent's description of how (view spoiler) or interestingly enough, when (view spoiler) (I know).

All in all, if you enjoyed Burial Rites, you'll enjoy this as well, although it was a bit longer than I'd like.
