by | Read by Frank Delaney

Fiction • 16.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2007

This fascinating novel tells the story of a young Irish doctor named Charles O'Brien and the chance encounters that befall him along his journeys. These include famous people such as Wilde, Yeats, Charles Stewart Parnell, and the founders of Sinn Fein. The story paints a vivid portrait of late-nineteenth-century Ireland and offers well-crafted characters who intermingle with real-life events. Frank Delaney's expert narration captures the spirit of his tale. With his rich Irish brogue and perfect literary aesthetics, Delaney offers an experienced yet intimate reading that expresses the pure melancholic ache that permeates history and literature. This true Irish experience will seize the listener's imagination from start to finish. L.B. © AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine [Published: APR/ MAY 08]
