Small Things Like These, by Claire Keegan

emotional hopeful inspiring reflective sad medium-paced
  • Plot- or character-driven? Character
  • Strong character development? Yes
  • Loveable characters? Yes
  • Diverse cast of characters? No
  • Flaws of characters a main focus? It's complicated


Claire Keegan writes very tenderly and calmly about important and sometimes even horrific topics. Her main characters are everyday people and her stories about the decisions they make. Also how society looks like, how it can make people suffer. She writes with love for her country and her criticism doesn't do any harm to this love, I think actually her love is the reason for it.
