Book of the Week:

The Story of Lucy Gault by William Trevor
I am drawn to those Irish writers who weave words together so masterfully that the reader is transported back to time and place and, at the end of story, is drained with the experience. This is a tale of chance events, mistakes, and bitter consequences. It focuses on a  painfully solitary life devoted to quietly achieving some measure of redemption. It is heartbreaking, and hauntingly, beautifully written.
