Staff Reviews

Emma Donoghue writes her words so deliberately – and it’s SO clear with this book! The slower pace in the beginning matches the setting, Ireland before electricity etc. As you learn the story of a young girl supposedly surviving on no food and very little water, you can’t help but wonder about every character, their motives, and how this will end. Just lovely!

“Lib Wright, a protege of Florence Nightingale and a nursing veteran of the Crimean War, is dispatched from London to a remote Irish village to keep watch on Anna O'Donnell, a young girl who is rumored to have refrained from eating for four months yet continues to thrive. Miracle or hoax? Lib is determined to uncover the truth, but the truth is never simple. In this beautiful, haunting novel, Donohue weaves a tale of misguided faith and duty, exploited innocence, and redemptive love. What is the secret behind Anna's mysterious ability to survive? The truth is uncovered as The Wonder propels readers to a shocking conclusion.”
