Four Letters of Love is one of my most loved books. It has all that we would ever need in a story. It’s hard to portray the inclination we get understanding this book since its rich and overpowering now and again. Like eating an excess of cake, or taking a look at a stunning painting or figure. There is just an excess of excellence.

Plot:  William Coughlan, a lean, balding top government employee, returns home from work one day to smash his family’s peaceful, congruous existence with the news that God wants him to paint. Deserting his job and auctioning off the majority of the family’s goods, William goes off into Ireland’s west for the late spring to put the Atlantic light to canvas. When he comes back, his significant other and twelve-year-old child, Nicholas, discover no comfort in the slices of shading on the unfinished canvasses. A cycle of absence and return is started. 

Muiris Gore is Master at the one-room school on the Irish island where he raises his family. Deserted long prior by the wonderful dream, he tries to ingrain pride and energy in his young charges and hitches his hopes to youngsters. His little girl, Isabel, is a splendid young lady, great at her studies and headed one day for college. His child, Sean, is a musical wonder, ready to get any instrument and play it as though he generally had. One day when Isabel moves on the stones of the island’s shore to Sean’s backup, Sean has an unheralded fit that abandons him quiet and faltering, the music inside him stilled. Isabel feels smashing blame that Sean’s “mishap” is by one means or another deficiency. With her folks’ fantasies now completely on her shoulders, Isabel leaves for the mainland to proceed with her studies.

Catastrophe strikes the Coughlan house not once but rather twice more in the next years. As a young fellow following in his dad’s government worker strides, Nicholas is left all of a sudden dispossessed of family and power. A dream of his dad moves Nicholas, now without a job and directionless, to discover and purchase back his dad’s one genuine masterpiece. Isabel’s life turns down a way of disillusionment and imperfect love, making her father extremely upset and sour and leaving severe leftovers of resignation in the measure of her mom’s life. At the point when the legacies of the Coughlan and Gore families at last meet up, miracles of hope, love and healing become possible, verification that there is an outline, an incredible reason, to the workings of the world.

About the Author: Niall Williams studied English and French Literature at University College Dublin and graduated with a MA in Modern American Literature. Niall has as of late composed a few screenplays. Two have been optioned by film firms.

Niall’s first novel was Four Letters of Love. Published in 1997, it went ahead to wind up in a universal success and has been distributed in more than twenty nations. His second novel,  As It Is In Heaven was distributed in 1999 and shortlisted for the Irish Times Literature Prize. Further books written by him are Only Say The Word, The Fall of Light, Boy in The World and the sequal, Boy and Man.  

Verdict: Wonderfully and melodiously written in a more conventional style of composing, as with Jane Austen, this story drove me to contemplate issues about predetermination and confidence, as Nicholas comes to understand that nothing is luck, however is all a player in God’s arrangement to finish the weave in the fabric of our lives. Since this novel is so splendidly composed and provocative, I chose to give it five stars, despite the fact that it won’t be as happy or light hearted the same number of the books that I so appreciate.

This book truly takes the reader on a beautiful journey, practically with the vibe of a fairy tale, with interesting and mystical characters that you feel profoundly associated with, as though you know their own particular delights and distresses. I could feel their breath catch, their heartbeat race, and some of the time, their hearts break – at various times all through novel. His words paint pictures, that I need to close my eyes and conceive frequently as I am reading his books. Essentially wonderful.
