In Claire Keegan's haunting novella, Small Things Like These, a seemingly ordinary Christmas season in 1985 Ireland takes a dramatic turn for Bill Furlong, a coal merchant and family man. While making a delivery to the local convent, Bill stumbles upon a horrifying secret that forces him to confront the dark underbelly of his own community and the lingering shadows of his past.

The town, cloaked in a heavy silence, seems to know about the injustice but chooses to turn a blind eye. Bill wrestles with his conscience, caught between the comfort of his own life and the urge to do what's right. Small Things Like These transcends its brief form, tackling weighty themes like the power of the Church in small communities, the courage it takes to speak truth to power, and the ripple effects of past wrongs.

Here's why you should pick up this powerful novella:

  • A Gripping Discovery: Prepare to be unsettled as Bill uncovers a truth that will challenge his world and force you to question the facades of a seemingly peaceful town.
  • Morality in the Face of Silence: The story delves into the complexities of human nature, exploring the weight of silence and the courage it takes to stand up for what's right, even when it's difficult.
  • A Glimpse into History: Small Things Like These offers a poignant glimpse into a specific time and place in Irish history, shedding light on a period often shrouded in silence.
  • Beautifully Crafted Prose: Keegan's evocative writing style draws you into Bill's world, making you feel the weight of his choices and the emotional turmoil he experiences.
  • A Quiet Act of Heroism: Despite its bleak setting, the novella offers a glimmer of hope. Bill's act of defiance, however small, reminds us that even ordinary people can make a difference.
  • A Lasting Impact: Small Things Like These is a powerful reminder that the most impactful acts of heroism can be subtle, driven by compassion and a flicker of humanity. It's a story that will stay with you long after you turn the last page.
