Hester doesn’t belong with the rest of the characters and her story is characterised by super-natural elements such as ghosts, curses and prophecies. It is a story of greed and betrayal, ethnic prejudices and profound self-sacrifice. A captivating story and portrayal of strong Irish female characters.
