Our customer reviews

Richard Jebb has returned from the United States to the quiet beauty, unchanging rhythms of life and close horizons of a small farming community along the shore of Lough Erne. Richard silently harbours larger ambitions and after his proposal to Rachel Nixon, the daughter of a neighbouring farmer, is refused he seizes his opportunity when her father dies without leaving a will. Complex and scheming, Richard manipulates the destinies of the Nixon family and his patient intrigue changes the lives of all those who live by the lough. Few writers have captured the comedy of country life, or the frustrations and daily struggles of small farmers, as faithfully as Shan Bullock. In The Loughsiders Bullock drew on the speech, as much as the landscape, of the area around Lough Erne to faithfully recreate the enclosed world he remembered from his childhood. First published in 1924, and set in the late-Victorian period, The Loughsiders is Bullock's most complete novel with its understanding of the Ulster character and ironic observation of Ulster life.show more
