This book gives an insight into the social history of Southern Ireland through the eyes of Robbie, the main character. His mind flits here and there, just like the story, but it's beautifully written and portrays the innocence of childhood, describing raw emotion to downright naughtiness. Robbie's head injury and his belief that he can perform miracles from God, is completely believeable. If you choose to believe too - don't be ashamed. I did. If you don't believe, then so be it. Read it and decide for yourself.
