Becoming Light: A 21st Century Retelling of the Life of Nano Nagle in Prose and Poetry (Used Book) - Barbara Ressler
Praise for Becoming Light
"Prose and poetry, narrative and dream-like interludes vie with each other in a series of vignettes, charting the twists and turns of an amazing journey under the shadow of the Penal Laws. Nano emerges in stages as a bright and vivacious child, as a privileged young woman moving in royal circles in Paris, as one listening to the voices and influences which beckoned her to risk everything for the Reign of God, as Lady of the Lantern on the dark, impoverished streets of Cork. This novel successfully presents a portrait of Nano Nagle which is credible and inspiring. It is well-written and well-structured."
