The Secret Scripture
I once lived among humankind, and found them in their generality to be cruel and cold, and yet could mention that names of three or four that were like angels. I suppose we measure the importance of our days by those few angels we spy among us...

Roseanne McNulty, perhaps nearing her one-hundredth birthday - no one is quite sure - faces an uncertain future, as the Roscommon Regional Mental Hospital where she's spent the best part of her adult life prepares for closure. Over the weeks leading up to this upheaval, she talks often with her psychiatrist, Dr Greene. This relationship, guarded but trusting after so many years, intensifies and complicates as Dr Greene mourns the death of his wife.

Told through their respective journals, the story that emerges - of Roseanne's family in 1930s Sligo - is at once shocking and deeply beautiful. Refracted through the haze of memory and retelling, Roseanne's story becomes an alternative, secret history of Ireland. Exquisitely written, it is the story of a life blighted by terrible mistreatment and ignorance, and yet marked still by love and passion and hope.

"The Secret Scripture"
Türkçe'ye "Saklı Kalanlar" olarak çevrilmiş Sebastian Barry tarafından yazılan muhteşem bir roman...
Ana karakterimiz Roseanne, 100 yaşından fazladır ve akıl hastanesindedir. Merak edilen soru: Neden akıl hastanesinde?
İşte Rose hayatını yazmaya başlayarak okuyucunun aklına takılan bütün soruları yanıtlıyor. Rose'un karşılaştığı sorunlar; dini, etnik, politik açıdan gördüğü düşmanlıklardır. Ve o bu düşmanlıklar içerisinde hayatta kalmaya çalışan gerçek bir kahraman tıpkı babası gibi. Yaşadığı travmatik hayat adeta Rose'un satırlarına yansıyor. Ben okurken bunu derinden hissettim.
Ve kitabın sonunda sizi bir süpriz bekliyor.

Okumadan önce Irlanda tarihi hakkında kısaca bilgi edinmenizde fayda var. İyi ki okudum, dersiniz umarım. Çünkü ben çok beğendim.

Kitabın sonuna doğru " başa dönüp tekrar mı okumalıyım, acaba ben yanlış mı yorumladım " diye düşündürüyor.Bir hayat hikayesi ; iki farklı bakıştan taban tabana zıt doğrular....Çok enteresan bir yorum.. Kitabı ve hikayesini çok beğendim..
The Arabs say that everything is already written in the book of life, and our job is merely to fulfil the narrative already there, invisible, unknown.
