Molly Sweeney is in the style of Faith Healer, with the story being told through the recollections of the three characters, Molly herself, Frank her husband and her surgeon Mr Rice. Molly Sweeney lost her eyesight when she was a child. Now she is given the chance to get at least partial vision back: the 'gift' of sight. A move from the world of darkness into a world of light. This entails leaving behind a familiar life and venturing into foreign and often terrifying territory. Molly's journey from darkness into light is one of the most remarkable a Brian Friel character has ever made.
