Maeve Binchy tells the story of wealth and prosperity moving into Dublin through a series of tales about the staff, patrons, and fans of the upscale Dublin restaurant Quentins. Binchy's fantastic storytelling skills are perfectly matched by Jennifer Wiltsie's touching reading. Wiltsie captures emotions, enthusiasms, and disappointments alike expertly and switches easily from an Irish brogue to an American accent. Characters sound angry when they should, hysterical when called upon, and genuine at every moment. Chapter breaks are nicely highlighted by classical pieces that reflect the tempo of the work. All told, this audiobook is well produced and does great justice to Binchy's characters. H.L.S. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award (c) AudioFile 2003, Portland, Maine [Published: APR/MAY 03]
