THE SECRET SCRIPTURE

Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Wanda McCaddon

Fiction • 10 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2008

Lucky listeners receive the gift of a great narrator and an amazing writer in THE SECRET SCRIPTURE, which was nominated for the 2008 Man Booker Prize. Ninety-nine-year-old Roseanne McNulty has been a patient in an Irish mental hospital for over 50 years. Not apparently crazy, she decides to write her story at the same time that the hospital director begins to interview her. While Rose reexamines a life lived during the Irish "troubles" and within the confines of a sectarian, conformist country, Dr. Grene tells his version of her story. Wanda McCaddon's exquisite reading illuminates the lyrical writing, and brings listeners deep into the book's explosive emotions. Rose's determined Irish lilt, a priest's oily tones, Dr. Grene's fragile neutrality. It's all here, and it's terrific. A.C.S. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine [Published: DECEMBER 2008]
