Marian Keyes has introduced readers to the lives, loves, and foibles of the five Walsh sisters. In this funny, heartbreaking, and triumphant new tale set in the Big Apple, it's Anna's turn in the spotlight. Life is perfect for Anna Walsh. She has the "Best Job in the World" as a PR exec for a top-selling urban beauty brand, a lovely apartment in New York, and a perfect husband-the love of her life, Aidan Maddox. Until the morning she wakes up in her mammy's living room in Dublin with her face in stitches, a dislocated knee, and completely smashed-up hands-and no memory of how she got there. While her mammy plays nursemaid, Anna tries to get better and keeps wondering why Aidan won't return her phone calls or emails. Recuperating from her injuries, a mystified Anna returns to Manhattan. Slowly beginning to remember what happened, she sets off on a search to find Aidan-a hilarious quest involving lilies (she can't stop smelling them), psychics, mediums, and anyone there who can promise her a reunion with her beloved... Written in her classic style, marrying the darker parts of life with humor and wit, Anybody Out There? is Marian Keyes' best novel to date, wonderfully charming look at love here and ever after. Performed by Terry Donnelly

"Irish native Anna Walsh enjoys her life in New York as a PR person for an upscale cosmetics company. As she meets and falls in love with Aidan Maddox, her life is almost perfect. When tragedy strikes, Anna must rely on her family in Ireland to support her through difficult times. Terry Donnelly's crisp Irish accent embodies Anna and changes subtly to show her tender broken heart. Donnelly ably varies pitch to distinguish between the characters. The production's only drawback concerns the accents of the American characters, who still retain a slight Irish lilt. Nevertheless, Donnelly's smooth lyrical voice will lure listeners into this entertaining audio experience. S.M. (c) AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine"
