Fiction • 8.75 hrs. • Unabridged • ©

When 9-year-old Lucy hears that her parents plan to move from Ireland, and the home that she loves, to England, far away from everything that is familiar to her, she runs away. As Terry Donnelly reads this haunting novel, the sounds of Ireland's summers and its sea and the voices of every childhood memory come forth. And it is Terry Donnelly's rendering of the plot that make the story stay in one's mind. William Trevor paints his backgrounds dark, but Donnelly pulls each character out of the darkness and makes us accept the vagaries of Lucy's life. J.P.
