The Weans at Rowallan

by Kathleen Fitzpatrick

In reading The Weans at Rowallan one has to remember that the children are Irish, and neglected at that, and that the country is Irish and rather wildly Irish, and to remember also the history of the family. Taken as a series of episodes in the life of an ordinary family suitable for literature, the book might easily offend by its lapses here and there into something very like brutality. But it is the history of a very special family living under very curious conditions.

Author of the Day

Carrie Doyle
Carrie Doyle's mysteries are extra cozy. She loves keeping her readers guessing, but also appealing to their senses with charming scenes straight from East Hampton, quirky characters and mouthwatering food descriptions. When she is not writing her latest novel, Doyle is sure to be part of one of a myriad of projects, which may include co-writing with another author, doing magazine articles, interviewing celebrities, arranging events or cooking up a storm in the kitchen. As our Author of the Day, Doyle talks about why her books are so yummy, gives us some insights in the character of Antonia Bingham and reveals why East Hampton is her favorite place in the world.
