Digging for peat in the mountain with his Uncle Tally,
Fergus finds the body of a child, and it looks like she’s been murdered. As
Fergus tries to make sense of the mad world around him—his brother on
hunger-strike in prison, his growing feelings for Cora, his parents arguing
over the Troubles, and him in it up to the neck, blackmailed into acting as
courier to God knows what—a little voice comes to him in his dreams, and the mystery
of the bog child unfurls.
Bog Child is an
astonishing novel exploring the sacrifices made in the name of peace and the
unflinching strength of the human spirit. Download and start listening now!
