Bernard MacLaverty is a master storyteller, and this is the essential MacLaverty novel: compassionate observation, elegant writing, and a heartrending story. It is also a profound examination of human love and how we live together - a chamber piece of resonance and power.

Profound study of a marriage.
If you could sum up Midwinter Break in three words, what would they be?
Profound, tender, moving.
Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?
Yes. The book sets up the conflict quite early and the characterization deepens at the same rate as the story develops always leaving one asking the question: what happened to these people and what will happen next.
Which character – as performed by James Cameron Stewart – was your favorite?
Gerry was my favorite. Stella sounded a little bit like Marge Simpson with an Ulster accent.
Who was the most memorable character of Midwinter Break and why?
Ultimately, Stella has the most dramatic arc.
Any additional comments?
This is the first book I've read or listened to by this author and I have since TBR'd all his books.

Most boring book EVER!!!!
Total sleep aid. Narrator’s voice was soothing , and the story plot was elusive. Could not wait until the end (was determined to complete it, since I paid for it!) and STILL have no sense of the story’s substance.
