Summary
Twenty years ago, Oona left the island of Inis for the very first time. On this windblasted rock of fishing boats and sheep's wool, where the only book was the Bible, girls stayed in their homes until mothers themselves. The island was a gift for some, a prison for others. Oona was barely more than a girl, but promised herself she would leave the tall tales behind and never return. The Island child tells two stories: of the child who grew up watching births and betrayals, storms and secrets, and of the adult Oona, desperate to find a second chance, only to discover she can never completely escape. As the strands of Oona's life come together, in blood and marriage and motherhood, she must accept the price we pay when we love what is never truly ours..
