The Lightning Tree

(2006)
A novel by

 

"A poignant elegy for [a] more beautiful Ireland."
Nuala O'Faolain


This unique novel tells the story of one woman's remarkable life, lived out in the harshly beautiful landscape of the Burren. A life which began in the shadow of the Great Famine and ended as electricity began to reach the byways of the west of Ireland.
It is a story told by Mariah, a woman healer who lived in harmony not only with the special environment of the Burren but with the spirits of past generations; a woman who drank deep from the well of traditional wisdom and customs, yet whose view of the world resonates with meaning for the present and future.
it is a story of love surprisingly found and tragically lost; of the struggle of an independent woman who was viewed with suspicion, whose healing powers were sought by many yet condemned from the pulpit.
Through her stories, a weave of fact, fantasy and fairy-tale, P.J. Curtis's Mariah memorably conjures up a world that has long disappeared yet which holds a special resonance for the present day.
