In County Cork, Ireland, before WWII, Elizabeth is seduced by an actor. Pregnant after this three-week affair, she's shipped off to remote Beara to marry a widower with four children. Maureen O'Brien captures the beauty of the Irish language and the Irish land in a comforting yet professional voice.There's never a moment to doubt the truth of the story because her reading is so compelling. She is soft and hard and always real. When a reader sounds like this, it's difficult to pull apart the performance. It is all of a piece and beautiful.
