Publisher's Summary

Continuing the history of the Irish Darcys begun in Missus and continued in The Harp in the South, this third novel of the trilogy re-acquaints listeners with the vicissitudes of slum life in a Sydney suburb. An unforgettable family and a cast of unforgettable characters enliven a story that is sometimes tragic, but often humourous, in a time of poverty and destitution, hope and promise.

Reading overdone

The reader, though no doubt with best intentions, overacted so much that it sounds like a children's book. The voices are painfully exaggerated, caricatures - females sound like either babies or elderly and nothing in between, males sound like 50 year pack-a-day smokers without exception.

The story was wonderful.
