Description

The Secret Scripture

Nearing her hundredth birthday, and still living in the mental hospital where she was committed as a young woman, Roseanne looks back on the tragedies and passions of her life through her secret journals.

Growing up in rural Ireland in the 1930s, her adolesence is marked by civil war and a turbulent family life. When she marries Tom McNulty, she believes she has found love and security — only for a terrible misunderstanding, born of prejudice and deception, to threaten her fragile happiness.

‘Beautiful and disturbing The Secret Scripture glows with the uncanny luminosity of a twisted fairy tale.’ Irish Times

‘In Roseanne McNulty — sly, confused, defiant, passionate — Sebastian Barry has created one of the most memorable narrators in recent fiction.’ Sunday Telegraph
