Description
In 1895, 26 year-old Bridget Cleary, a strong-minded and independent village girl, disappeared from her house in rural Tipperary. At first her family said she had been taken by the fairies until her badly burned body was found in a shallow grave. Her husband, father, aunt, and four cousins were arrested and tried for murder, and the story gained notoriety across Ireland and England as people tried to make sense of what had happened. In the tradition of "The Return of Martin Guerre", "The Great Cat Massacre", and "The Cheese and the Worms", this is a stunning dissection of an incident in history that reveals everything about the collision between town and country, storytelling and science, old and new.
