"Where does time go? This enchanting tale about losing and gaining time offers an interesting answer. In an Irish village, 15-year-old J.J. Liddy seeks the source of a time leak between the human and faerie worlds. Narrator Marcella Riordan effortlessly takes the listener from one land to another, beautifully fleshing out the range of characters with her lilting brogue. As music unifies the two worlds, the chapters are broken up by lively renditions of traditional Irish music, a fitting and pleasurable addition to the text. A celebration of culture and fantasy, this award-winning novel lends itself to the audio format as though it were meant to be. M.R.P. (c) AudioFile 2007, Portland, Maine"
