by | Read by Dearbhla Molloy

Fiction • 6.5 hrs. • Abridged • © 2001

Irish-born travel writer Kathleen de Burca is experiencing a mid-life crisis and decides to try her hand at writing history. She investigates the divorce of an Irish land baron in 1850, looking into scandal, class structure, and geography while at the same time gaining appreciation for her own life and Irish roots. Dearbhla Molloy’s mellifluous Irish voice and inflections bring de Burca to life, replete with her struggles to understand the plight of the Irish poor then and now. Molloy keeps de Burca’s exploration of the past firmly intertwined with her own past and present, never faltering in her ability to convey the connectedness of the multiple stories. M.B.K. 2002 Audie Award Finalist. © AudioFile 2001, Portland, Maine [Published: AUG/ SEP 01]
