Jacqueline O'Mahony takes listeners back to mid-nineteenth-century Ireland and the American West in this heartrending novel. Aoife McMahon's multifaceted narration brings this story of grief, resilience, and the burning desire to survive to life. Her melodious Irish accent tells the story of Honora, whose whole life has been a fight for survival that was foretold by a superstition relating to her birth: A robin flew into the house as she was born and her mother died. When she is the only person from her village to survive the Great Famine, she immigrates to America, determined to find a better life. McMahon gives the diverse cast personality through unique voices. Especially compelling is the character Joseph, a Native American kindred spirit whose voice is full of compassion, empathy, and wisdom.
