In this wonderful first novel, Kathleen Burke, an Irish travel writer, takes a leave from her job and her life in England to research the story of an alleged passionate affair between an English landowner's wife and her Irish coachman in the years just following the Great Potato Famine. Kathleen is also trying to recover from the death of her dearest friend, seeking to find out what "family" means to her, and where "home" is. O'Faolain unfolds these intertwined stories, of the ancient love affair (if it really happened), of Kathleen's own past, and Ireland's, with great art. Dearbhla Molloy's reading is a marvel of intelligence, wit, and sympathy. B.G. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award (c) AudioFile 2003, Portland, Maine [Published: JUN/JUL 03]
