"The Good People" by Hannah Kent
I’ll try to upload a proper review soon. I’ve hardly had any time to read novels this year (I think I’ve read about 3 compared to my usual 30+) but this was a good one by a young South Aussie in my fav genre - historical fiction. Not quite as good as her awesome first novel from her PhD “burial rites” but still very interesting and dark. I’ve been fascinated in faerie lore since I was about 7 years old (or younger - it was the day of Hayley’s comet sighting in Sydney in the 1980s) when I first saw (and was later given) a treasured book “faeries” by Brian Froud & Alan Lee by a family friend -Sandy.
My score: 7.5/10
