Emma Donoghue’s — The Wonder *****

Emma Donoghue’s — The Wonder *****

Lib, an English nurse, arrives in an Irish village in the 1850s to keep watch over Anna so as to confirm that she doesn’t eat. The child’s fast is driving the faithful on pilgrimages to her house and Lib is suspicious.

This is not only a book about the politics of religion, but blind faith and Lib is determined to get to the bottom of why Anna fasts.

How did this author keep me engrossed in her tale when most of the story is set in Anna O’Donnell’s bedroom? It’s no wonder. This book is beautifully written as well as an intriguing tale.

  2. First off I want to say wonderful blog! I had a quick question which I’d like
    to ask if you do not mind. I was interested to know how you
    center yourself and clear your thoughts before writing. I’ve had a hard time clearing my thoughts in getting my ideas out.
    I truly do enjoy writing however it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are usually wasted just trying to figure out
    how to begin. Any suggestions or hints? Many thanks!

  4. You really make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find
    this topic to be actually something which I think I would never understand.
    It seems too complicated and very broad for me. I am looking forward for your next post, I’ll try to get the hang of
    it!
