Overview

In 1938, Virgilia Wilde, an Irish writer, leaves England to begin a new life in the tranquil setting of Wicklow with her daughter Nan. As strange visions threaten those around her, Virgilia must decide if she can intervene and prevent tragedies to come, or if her worst fears must play out as she helplessly looks on…

This follow-up to the critically acclaimed haunted-house novel The Uninvited is a sharply observed account of pre-World War II Dublin, as well as a darkly prophetic forecast of things to come. The Unforeseen reaffirms Macardle as Ireland’s answer to Shirley Jackson.

About the Author

Dorothy Macardle (1889-1958), an Irish writer, novelist, playwright, and historian, was born in Dundalk into a wealthy brewing family. A member of the Gaelic League and Cumann na mBan, Macardle spent time imprisoned because of her activities during the Irish Civil War. She later wrote about those experiences in Earthbound: Nine Stories of Ireland (1924). One of her most famous books was The Irish Republic (1937), a narrative account of the Irish War of Independence and its aftermath. She died in Drogheda in 1958, critical of what she saw as the reduced status of women in the 1937 Constitution of Ireland.
