"Jim Norton captures the ache and longing that permeate William Trevor's marvelous new novel. Admittedly, he narrates a tad slowly, but that's all right, as nothing in the story moves fast. Don't let that deter you though. Trevor has written a timeless tale of love found, lost, and perhaps found again. Set in rural Ireland among farmers of few words and watchful shopkeepers, the story is sharp, sweet, and painfully perceptive. Norton uses just enough vocal variations for us to keep the characters straight and narrates in an accent subtly influenced by the Emerald Isle. His tone, at once gentle and solemn, would suit the recitation of a myth, which of course, this is. A.C.S. (c) AudioFile 2010, Portland, Maine"
