Rain on the Wind Author:Walter Macken Praise for Rain on the Wind — "Mr. Macken has spun a tale full of dramatic and racy incident. He creates characters as naturally and memorably as he does the savage and kinder moods of the sea. In its vigor, its humor and poignancy, this is an admirable novel of Irish life." Manchester Guardian — "Mr. Macken catches in his lilting prose the rhyt... more »hm of life on the Atlantic seaboard -- the poverty, the faith, the pleasures and the anxieties of a rugged and graceful people.
His seascapes have poetry in them and his characters are admirably scaled." Irish Times
"...It is not the story that matters . . . but the way it is told, the unsurpassable rightness of everything, the life in the characters major and minor, the union, rare in fiction of the last three decades of health with beauty."« less
