Small Things Like These
by Claire Keegan
Review by Claude

Beautiful, magical and simple. If you're looking for a fable with depth and conscience this short read will fill you with sadness and hope. When Hilary Mantel writes that this book 'wastes not a word', she means it. The level of thought and care carve characters that the reader instantly cares about. This book is already a modern classic, read it now!
