Small Things Like These, by Claire Keegan

4.0

"...was there any point in being alive without helping one another? Was it possible to carry on along through all the years, the decades, through an entire life, without once being brave enough to go against what was there and yet call yourself a christian, and face yourself in the mirror?"
I enjoyed this beautifully written short book. I'm not sure how to accurately describe it, but somehow the writing felt calm and peaceful. I had to keep reminding myself it was the 1980s. It seemed like it could have been 50 or 100 years earlier. It was a lovely book.
Thanks to NetGalley for an early copy.
