Trip to Ireland

I read Stuart Woods "Chief" and was impressed with the quality of writing and story telling. This is book two in the series of the Lee family. This book drops a generation to Will Lee Jr. He is drinking and not pulling effort into his law school studies, so decides to take time off from school and visit his maternal grandfather in Ireland. The story takes place mainly in Cork in southern Ireland. Woods does provide a good deal of information about the country side. The opening of the book grabs your attention but you will have to wait to the end of the book to find out what happed. Will meets an English couple and helps them with the building of a sail boat for a cross Atlantic race. The story is suspenseful, with information about Irish politics of the 1970's and the IRA terrorist attack's against the English. There is some romance and humor in the story. Will has a lifetime habit of not finishing anything he starts so part of the story is will he finish the boat, run away when the situation get tough, will Will and Connie get married, will he grow up into a man? John Keating did a great job with the narration and all the accents.

Any additional comments?

I had listened to all of the Will Lee series prior to listen to this. As far as I know the audio version of this one had not been available until fairly recently. The Will Lee series is one of my all time favorites, and I have listened to audio books constantly for close to 20 years.
