A troubled young man is sent to inspect a supposedly deserted family property, where four charming squatters change the course of his life, gently leading him back to self-confidence and a sense of direction. One feels that John McDonough's voice must have been firmer and more flexible ten years ago, but he reads with great warmth and sensitivity to the tone of the text. He proceeds in a leisurely manner, as if savoring every word, and invites the listener to do the same. This is a gracious entertainment with enough depth to leave a pleasant resonance.
