REVIEW Õ Away By Jane Uruhart Isle and the barely hospitable land of the Canadian Shield; from the flourishing town of Port Hope to the flooded streets of Montreal; from Ottawa at the time of Confederation to a large windowed house at the edge of a Great Lake during the pres. 35 stars This is an intriguing well written historical novel My knowledge of Canadian history is practically nil so I wasn t even aware that there were so many Irish potato famine victims in Canada struggling for survival during the time of the US Civil War It turns out history happened elsewhere too The title takes on a double meaning As Uruhart s story opens we meet Mary a very young woman living on a remote island off the coast of Ireland who has the traumatizing experience of pulling a shipwrecked man out of the ocean only to have him die in her arms After this she is never the same Her fellow islanders superstitiously refer to her as away and believe she has been influenced by an evil spirit Mary does feel an attachment to this man she pulled out of the sea for the rest of her life Eventually however Mary does become wedded to a local school master and they start a family She tends to be distant but manages to lead a normal life for awhile Later when it becomes obvious that they will starve to death their local landlord who is rather taken with Mary helps them escape to Canada By the way there are two landlords the Sedgewick brothers who are colorfully drawn characters The story of their journey to America and their separation and uarantine when they arrive is glossed over I felt that the novel would have been powerful with that part of the story told especially from their young son s perspectiveAfter they ve established a home barely making a living Mary suddenly disappears This is the most heartbreaking part Liam just seven years old wakes up alone with a baby sister who needs to be fed and changed and a cow that needs to be milked Brian his father is away from home for a couple days doing the only work he can find so it s on Liam to become a little man There was a phrase their father repeated which translated into the trace of a man on a woman which resonates throughout the book first with Mary s story then Eileen s Liam and Eileen seem like real characters I cared about them and they urged me to keep turning the pages especially when Eileen s story becomes dramatic I apologize if this review seems disjointedthere are little mysteries that unfold along the way that I shouldn t touch and both Irish and Native American folklore and spiritualism effect both Mary and EileenThis tale is told in flashback and we are briefly introduced to four generations of women Mary Eileen Deirdre and Esther but the latter two are not developed at all and I felt there were parts of this story that seemed either left out or too vague However it is a riveting read and I would certainly recommend it
