The first lilting phrases draw listeners into the life of the small Irish village, Lough Glass. Fionnula Flanagan is the perfect storyteller for Binchy's compelling story of mother and daughter. Their changing relationship, viewed with a soft lens, is beautifully reflected in Flanagan's interpretation. Flanagan effortlessly conveys the adolescent voices of Kit and Clio, the gentle, venerable speech of reclusive Sister Madeline and the firm strength of Helen McMahon. Flanagan's voice can be soft and gentle as an Irish mist or spirited and sharp when the story demands. She captures the characters through her excellent narration and delights the listener with this quietly compelling tale. R.F.W. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: AUG 95]
