Publisher's Summary

When Dr. Richard Buckley returns home to his wife and beloved hometown of Dunderrig, his mind is wearied by the ravages of The Great War. Disillusioned by the horror and pointlessness of battle, his civilian transition strains more than just his state of mind, as his marriage crumbles beneath the weight of duty.
Out of the rubble of this doomed relationship, twins James and Juliet arrive - born into an uncertain and hostile new world. Against the backdrop of this idyllic town, this story takes you to the furthest reaches of Nazi occupied Europe. James and Juliet come of age in a world on the brink of chaos, where the remnants of rebellion at home have snowballed into the horrors of yet another world war.
Historically rich and moving, the tale of two children from the Irish countryside caught in the throes of wartime Europe is a testament to the strength of the human spirit and its willingness to endure. Experience this critical time in history like never before in So Much Owed.

A great audio book to sink into!

I have a confession. I had already read this book on a kindle. But like some books that you can’t get enough of, it’s always nice to view (or listen) to them from another medium as you know you’re not going to be disappointed!
I’ve done the same with all of the Stieg Larsson books, as well as Birdsong and Charlotte Gray by Sebastian Faulks, Tana French, Cormac McCarthy and even Frederick Forsyth.
Most audio books can be enjoyed while you get on with the humdrum tasks of life. Only a rare few like So Much Owed can be enjoyed simply by sitting down and closing your eyes.
Looking forward now to seeing this in the cinema!

great story, didn't enjoy the narrator

really enjoyed this as a story but wish I'd read it, as the narrator sounded like a bored school teacher dictating notes. accents were all over the place and voices were often indistinct from each other.
