Narrator Susan Denaker creates an unforgettable experience that reflects the intensity of a family's emotions as she alternates between past and present. In 1957, sisters Nora and Theresa journeyed from Ireland to Boston, seeking opportunity. The choices they made led to heartbreaking consequences. Their adult children, unaware of this past, harbor disappointments and ambitions of their own. Denaker exudes Nora's pragmatism, infusing her Irish accent with firm tones. Theresa transforms from a vivacious young woman into a mature, cloistered nun. Sons John and Brian embody the New World with Boston accents. Daughter Bridget suppresses her Dorchester cadence as she makes a life in New York City. Denaker's sympathetic performance complements Sullivan's storytelling to reveal complex family dynamics and the power of identity. J.R.T. © AudioFile 2017, Portland, Maine [Published: JUNE 2017]
