      This is a wonderful, beautifully crafted book. If you’re looking for a few quiet moments of insight, read one story a day, draw close to its characters and share Keegan’s wealth of insight into the human heart. Walk The Blue Fields by Claire Keegan is published in Britain by Faber and Faber () and in the U.S. by Black Cat (). In Walk the Blue Fields, the title story, the wedding the Priest is attending is in fact that of his former secret love, for: "If he could not leave the priesthood, she would not see him this way again." One of Martha’s children was not conceived as assumed by her husband, but by a man who came to the door to sell her roses.

    A long-haired woman moves into the priest's house and sets fire to his furniture. That Christmas, the electricity goes out. A forester mortgages his land and goes off to a seaside town looking for a wife. He finds a woman eating alone in the hotel. Set in Ireland, these short stories make for grim reading and the author doesn't hold back on any subject matter. This is actually a refreshing change - and that events such as child abuse and Catholic priests falling in love, really do happen. Each story is so realistic that they sent shivers down my spine. They're easy to read as the writing style is so matter-of-fact. A cheery .
