Award-winning poet Regina McBride enters the realm of fiction with her stunning coming-of-age novel, The Nature of Water and Air. Flowing with lyrical prose and Irish myth, this mesmerizing story is permeated by a beautiful, romantic sadness.

Young Clodagh Sheehy's life is surrounded by mysteries. Her mother Agatha is a tinker woman who had appeared, seemingly out of nowhere, to gain the affections of the affluent man who becomes Clodagh's father. After his death, mother and daughter are sent to an aging, sea-sprayed estate on the Western coast of Ireland. After her mother's suicide, orphaned Clodagh begins a harsh journey into womanhood. In time, she will discover the truth about her mother and be forced to make a vital decision.

When paired with narrator Terry Donnelly's captivating accents and thoughtful inflection, McBride's sensitive tale will resonate in listeners' minds long after its enchanting conclusion.

    " YUK...why do authors think incest is something fundamentally interesting? Especially a writer who has so much potential and a gift with language? Had I known the subject of the book, I'd have NEVER bought it, much less read it. DON'T BOTHER. "

    " This was a somewhat disturbing but haunting story. The subject matter was dark ... the characters were dark ... but the writing style was beautiful and made you forget how troubling the plot was. The Nature of Water and Air is not for everyone but I found it fascinating since it was a part of Ireland I didn't know existed. "

    " Not sure what to say about this book...it was extremely well written given the dark and disturbing story that was told. The story was sad and haunting woven with Irish myth, forbidden love, and family mystery. "
