Kerry Hardie - Hannie Bennet’s Winter Marriage
Harper Collins

It is hard to believe that Hannie Bennet’s Winter Marriage is poet Kerry Hardie’s first novel. The language flows effortlessly throughout, and her descriptions are achingly beautiful. The novel offers a social commentary on the demise of the Anglo-Irish community. Hardie’s Ireland is not a place that I recognise, but by the conclusion of this exquisitely written novel I was hooked. With so many ‘light’ women novelists around, Hardie makes a refreshing change. She is a welcome new voice in Irish literature.
