Claire Keegan. Vykhovannya. (Foster)
"The piece presents the story of a little girl who they temporarily send away to live in a family of Irish farmers. The girl does not know when she will be able to return home, but in the meantime among those strangers she finds the warmth and care that she has never had. With their care, the child feels incredibly happy, until an unexpected mystery is revealed...
The 7 short sections offer an unforgettable view of the world through the eyes of a child. This is an emotionally charged story taking place in an unusual world full of innocence. Special emphases in the short story are created by really strong dialogues that Claire Keegan is famous for."
