Savage Her Reply - YA Book of the Year, Irish Book Awards 2020

by Deirdre Sullivan

We are ourselves

When Aífe's sister dies, she is forced to marry her widower, the chieftain Lir. She promised to protect her sister's children, but Lir's mistreatment drives Aífe to use her magic against them.

and we are also stories people tell.

This savage retelling of a classic Irish fairy tale gives voice to Aífe, the scorned woman who took terrible vengeance on the children of Lir.

I am more than the worst thing I have ever done.

Rich, lyrical prose speaks of loss, jealousy, revenge. And, finally, forgiveness.

'A fiercely feminist novel. . . intellectually pleasing and emotionally devastating.' The Irish Times
