Fiction • 8.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1929

Her lightly upper-crust English voice should make Fiona Shaw the right reader for Elizabeth Bowen's sharp comedy of manners. Yet, that lightly pleasant voice rarely conveys the acid commentary inherent in this tale set during the Irish Troubles. Additionally, Shaw's use of a single pace and tone throughout the book makes it difficult to differentiate between characters or to follow shifts of scene.
