I found each story---from gentle to rough--never dull as they moved along to very satisfying conclusions! The reader, Mr. Moran, gave each character distinctive qualities which kept the telling of the tales riveting. I'm hesitant to reveal the nature of the stories, because even with few words, I may spoil the surprises. I will say that the first story was about kind people and the past. The second story was a fanciful tale of something found and the family that found it. And about the third story, I'll say it's definitely for a mature audience!
About that last one, because of the choice of characterization Mr. Moran used, I felt I was listening to an older version of the Macolm McDowell character from his most famous movie--it's not, but with that voice in my mind and ears, it made the story come far more alive than just by reading it!

Who was your favorite character and why?
Derek. His story was so touching and his lingering moments remembering his departed wife brought me to tears. The narrative was lyrical and the beautiful passages left me wishing that he could have his dear Deirdre return for those lovely cups of tea and his painstaking soul-filling love for her. The tragedy underscored this tribute to love and the difficulty of loss that is inevitable when we have loved so deeply.
Have you listened to any of John Augustine Moran’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
No, but I have seen his other work and he has reached new heights with this work!
