Sincere and gentle story about leaving home to live abroad. It will be most appreciated by people who had a similar experience. Still it won't leave a single reader indifferent.
The performance is brilliant.
Thank you for an amazing experience.
I loved this audio book from beginning to..well the penultimate chapter. This is more in relation to the story itself and not at all about the performance of the speaker whom I have found superb!! I would recommend it simply for that already!
Sadly the storyline seems to drift - it's an unsatisfactory ending leaving us "hanging" - Alish was portrayed as the good girl and turned out to be not so nice and less principled after all - which is not only disappointing but also rather puzzling as I had thought that her character development had already reached its peak - but maybe I just believe that every good book should have an even better ending. And that was not the case here.
Beautifully narrated. I found it hard to stop listening to it. Transported to an earlier time when life was lived at a slower pace, even in New York. But the problems of relationships remain the same whatever the era. I came to this novel via Norah Webster, his latest, and was interested to find mention of her in this. Would love a further instalment of this very Irish community.

Loved this book, a great story, a romance with grit. The book is brought to life by the mellifluous Irish lilt of the narrator.
