    [Read] (The Secret Scripture) Sexuality in beautiful young women in backward societies is a double edged sword On the one hand it attracts young men sometimes into marriage and on the other it can seem to justify the accusation of being called a slut And should the woman have a baby outside marriage then the accusation is proved and the girl condemned and if punishment follows it will be considered validatedIt's not much different today is it? Call a girl a slut and pe

The Secret Scripture Read & download Å PDF, DOC, TXT, eBook or Kindle ePUB free F memory and retelling Roseanne's story becomes an alternative secret history of Ireland's changing character and the story of a life blighted by terrible mistreatment and ignorance and yet marked still by love and passion and hope. Rose McNultry is almost 100 years old For most of her life she has been a patient in Roscommon Mental hospital in rural west Ireland This mad woman has lived here most of her adult life The hospital is going to be shut down and she is facing a scary future of being moved from where she has lived most of her life She has freuent talks with her therapistpsychiatrist in the weeks leading up to the hospital s closure Her therapists job is to determine what to do with the patients left behind He needs to determine who is of sound mind but institutionalized against their will and who is mentally ill This also asks the uestion if you are sane when you are institutionalized will this prolonged treatment render you insaneRose has been keeping a journal of her life which she keeps hidden under the floorboards of her room She only takes her journals out when it is safe It is through her journal entries that we learn about her past Her relationship with her parents she had a loving father and a mother who distances herself from her daughter Rose falls in love with a young Man who has a domineering Mother who does not approve of her Catholic son being with a Presbyterian young woman Father Gaunt makes sure that Rose does not marry the young man she is in love with The priest s misogyny mistrust and dislike for women is Rose s downfall Ireland s history comes into play as does the Catholic church who puts away those are different who are sexual or deemed loose A priest s word is law back then and troublemakers are removed from society As a result tragedy cruel treatment and prejudice ensuesI enjoyed how the story went back and forth telling Rose s story then and her story now For some reason the jumping back and forth between decades made Rose s story sad poignant I could feel her loneliness and pain I unlike Rose would have been mad as hell at having been locked up all those years I would have raged and fought She chose the path of forgiveness She is a survivor There is something uite beautiful in her ability to sit with her loss and loneliness and forgive those who have wronged her This book is beautifully written It s a big book with a lot of heart It has a very poetic and Gothic feel to it For some reason while reading this book I thought of other Gothic books such as Jane Eyre These books are not the same and do not have similar story lines but they do both have a lot of atmosphere and have the same type of dreary feel to themSee of my reviews at wwwopenbookpostcom

Sebastian Barry Ô 2 Summary

For history as far as I can see is not the arrangement of what happens in seuence and in truth but a fabulous arrangement of surmises and guesses held up as a banner against the assault of withering truthThe Secret Scripture is a sublime work of fiction about memory and its effect on history and truth It s about love and loss grief religion and Ireland It nearly broke my heart but left me with a glimpse of joy and hope It s a slow unraveling of the mystery surrounding the reason why Roseanne McNulty has been institutionalized at the Roscommon Regional Mental Hospital for the past sixty years of her nearly one hundred years of life Her story is gradually revealed through her own narrative as recorded in a hidden journal as well as through inuiries made by Dr Grene the psychiatrist charged with her care Roscommon is slated to shut down and Dr Grene must determine which patients if any were wrongfully committed for reasons other than mental instability The point of view alternates between Roseanne s voice and that of Dr Grene What Roseanne tells us and what Dr Grene uncovers from old documents are two different versions of the truth Dr Grene must determine which to believe and how these stories ultimately matter in his own decision regarding Roseanne s fate in her old age The one thing that is fatal in the reading of impromptu history is a wrongful desire for accuracy There is no such thingRoseanne s story is a tragic one and my heart ached for this gentle soul left abandoned due to the ignorance and prejudices of other human beings A Protestant in a country ravaged by civil war Roseanne is a victim of the power of the Irish Catholic Church in the early 1900s Father Gaunt is a symbol of the perversion of the influences of the church at that time over the lives and the moral judgments of those in its path Morality has its own civil wars with its own victims in their own time and place The story is told slowly and is one to be read with uiet contemplation allowing Sebastian Barry s extraordinary prose to wash over and captivate you I closed the book with a feeling of absolute contentment despite the grim journey I will no doubt read of this author s work and am in fact anxious to do so I highly recommend this five star book There are things that move at a human pace before our eyes but other things move in arcs so great they are as good as invisible
