THE HARD WAY HOME The Star and the Shamrock, Book 3

Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Siobhan Waring

Historical Fiction • 7.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2020

Narrator Sibohan Waring presents Liesl and Erich Bannon, who came to Ireland on the Kindertransport of Jewish children from Germany during WWII. Listeners will join them in 1950s Ballycreggen, where they are young adults living with their adoptive parents, Elizabeth and Daniel Liber; their birth mother, Ariella; and a host of memorable locals and refugees. When Liesl, a college student, is invited to an international debate in Berlin, she meets Kurt Richter, a childhood friend, at the event. Waring captures Kurt's heavy German accent and convincing personality as he courts Liesl. Standout characters include Liesl's endearing mother and teacher, Elizabeth Liber, and inspiring Rabbi Frank. In the moving epilogue, author Jean Grainger shares her personal reaction to her meticulous research. S.G.B.
