This audiobook centers on the trials and tribulations of a Catholic family--Lucy, May, Veronica and Agnes--four sisters who are raised by their aunt. Read by the author, the family's history is revealed through a series of seemingly isolated and unconnected events. The story seems rambling, and McDermott's voice is flat and unwavering as it drones on through the confusing cast of characters. The difficulty in keeping characters clearly in focus may be due to the abridgment or the narrator's lack of enthusiasm. Some audio books are superbly read by their creators; this is not one of them.
