Staff Reviews


Since his earlier book, The Master, Tóibín has been my favorite Irish novelist. Nora Webster,
his new novel, secures his place. The story of a too early widowed
mother of four is both elegant and reserved. Nora is forced to return to
work, cope with her young sons and reestablish herself all under the
watchful, small-town eyes of her neighbors. Nora's spirit emerges in
unusual ways, keeping her tale both surprising and rewarding.

“This quiet but beautifully constructed novel of grief is the tale of an Irish woman caught between looking after her own emotional well-being and that of her four young children in the wake of her husband's death. Her relatives and community mean well, but they trespass almost as often as they support. Like Nora's own missteps, those of outsiders are also forgivable. Toibin's work gets deeper and richer with each new book. I'm already looking forward to his next.”
