Publisher's Summary

In Emma Donoghue's latest masterpiece, an English nurse brought to a small Irish village to observe what appears to be a miracle - a girl said to have survived without food for months - soon finds herself fighting to save the child's life.
Tourists flock to the cabin of 11-year-old Anna O'Donnell, who believes herself to be living off manna from heaven, and a journalist is sent to cover the sensation. Lib Wright, a veteran of Florence Nightingale's Crimean campaign, is hired to keep watch over the girl.
Written with all the propulsive tension that made Room a huge best seller, The Wonder works beautifully on many levels - a tale of two strangers who transform each other's lives, a powerful psychological thriller, and a story of love pitted against evil.

Could not get past the narration

I love this author. I waited eagerly for this book's publication. I tried to listen five different times. Alas, when Kate Lock launched from her very pleasing narration of the basic text into her shrill, banshee interpretation on Irish accent, I just. Couldn't.Take. It.

Why a producer thought this accent was a good idea is simply confounding. It ruined this listen.

I am blind and "read" all my books and magazines on audio. I am supremely tolerant of imperfections in narration.

Alas, not so much here.

The Wonder is a wonder

Marvelous story with fabulous narration. Emma Donoghue has woven a dense, compelling novel of love, deception and religiosity.
