Publisher's Summary

The bus from Dublin to Limerick has never meant much to the inhabitants of Kilbrody, until a woman steps off it, marches into the pub, and drinks herself into oblivion. When she finally wakes up, several days later, it is to discover that Charlie Finn (who put her to bed), the local garda, and indeed the whole village are talking about her. Who is the woman on the bus? The question is, will she tell them?

Happy Surprise

When we chose this book we wondered if we would enjoy it. The alcoholism that seemed to be a problem of the main character and others felt like a drawback, a grim element of the story. But as the story unfolded the author's compassion and perceptiveness stretched our hearts. Never a boring book, the story is continually alive with emotional intensity, which keeps your interest and enthusiasm, and yet at times I looked forward to a shift into a more calm mode. The humor of the author was delightful and brought a refreshing balance to the difficulties faced by the characters. We thoroughly enjoyed the story and the reading of the boook and commend it to you!

Very enjoyable

I was drawn in by the characters. I could not stop listening to the audio book to learn more about the characters problems and how they would respond to them. It was up lifting how positive thinking or hope, could help put serious issues into prospective and not defeat the individual or the family. I would listen to this book again.

So enjoyable!

This was such a pleasure to listen to, I didn't want it to end! A very engrossing story with interesting characters and lots going on. Pauline McLynn narrating it herself is an added bonus!

Great!

My first Audible experience and I'm loving it! The story is engrossing and the author reading it herself makes it come to life (I adore the Irish accent anyway).
Audible is a great idea and I'm already hooked, will probably extend my membership as one book a month will definitely not be enough!

Very enjoyable

A good storyline, believable characters, well written and read (with a lovely Irish accent). I didn't want it to finish.
