Sile Bermingham narrates this tender coming-of-age novel with a straightforward style and a well-enunciated Irish accent. Siobhan is a sheltered young woman who lives with her Uncle Kee in rural Ireland. They run the family pub at a place called the Leeside, where they share a passion for Irish poetry. When an American professor of Irish literature visits Siobhan and Kee, he inspires Siobhan to think of life beyond the Leeside. Bermingham gives the professor a subtle impression of an American accent as he falls in love with Siobhan. The story is infused with lines of poetry and Irish history. The lovely part of the audio format is listening to Irish names, like Siobhan, and other Irish words pronounced so perfectly. M.M.G. © AudioFile 2017, Portland, Maine [Published: JULY 2017]
