“Lib Wright, a protege of Florence Nightingale and a nursing veteran of the Crimean War, is dispatched from London to a remote Irish village to keep watch on Anna O'Donnell, a young girl who is rumored to have refrained from eating for four months yet continues to thrive. Miracle or hoax? Lib is determined to uncover the truth, but the truth is never simple. In this beautiful, haunting novel, Donohue weaves a tale of misguided faith and duty, exploited innocence, and redemptive love. What is the secret behind Anna's mysterious ability to survive? The truth is uncovered as The Wonder propels readers to a shocking conclusion.”

Description


A 2016 Shirley Jackson Awards Finalist*The latest masterpiece by Emma Donoghue, bestselling author of Room* In the latest masterpiece by Emma Donoghue, bestselling author of Room, an English nurse brought to a small Irish village to observe what appears to be a miracle-a girl said to have survived without food for months-soon finds herself fighting to save the child's life.Tourists flock to the cabin of eleven-year-old Anna O'Donnell, who believes herself to be living off manna from heaven, and a journalist is sent to cover the sensation. Lib Wright, a veteran of Florence Nightingale's Crimean campaign, is hired to keep watch over the girl.Written with all the propulsive tension that made Room a huge bestseller, THE WONDER works beautifully on many levels--a tale of two strangers who transform each other's lives, a powerful psychological thriller, and a story of love pitted against evil. ACCLAIM FOR THE WONDER: Deliciously gothic.... Dark and vivid, with complicated characters, this is a novel that lodges itself deep (USA Today, 3/4 stars); Heartbreaking and transcendent (New York Times); A fable as lean and discomfiting as Anna's dwindling body.... Donoghue keeps us riveted (Chicago Tribune); Donoghue poses powerful questions about faith and belief (Newsday)
