Claire Keegan's remarkable collection of short fiction Walk the Blue Fields (2007) comprises seven heart-wrenching stories that examine family bonds, buried secrets, forbidden love, missed opportunities, loss and loneliness. The stories offer a fascinating insight into contemporary life in rural Ireland, as the country struggles to shake off the yoke of its past and wake up from the nightmare of its history. The characters in "The Parting Gift", "Walk the Blue Fields" and "The Forester's Daughter" find themselves wrestling with their realities and attempting to find purpose and meaning in their lives.
