Hannah Kent’s The Good People takes place in 19th century Ireland populated with those who trust in fairies and traditional healers. In Sara Taylor’s The Shore women appear as witches and healers both in the past and into the future. In both novels these traditional women’s worlds are viewed with suspicion and distrust. Both are seen as simple and dangerous by the incoming faiths, and their male advocates. Chair Sandy Verschoor.
