Bog Child is a gripping novel that does an excellent job portraying a complicated era in a complex way instead of reducing it to black and white. The bog child ends up being an archaeological find and Fergus plays host to the archaeologist and her daughter that come to investigate, which adds another fascinating layer to the story. If you’re looking for a book with issues you can really sink your teeth into, this is an excellent choice!
