"Narrator Heather O'Neil delivers all the passion, frustration, and guilt experienced by Dubliner Gina Moynihan as she becomes caught up in an adulterous affair. Gina is brought to life through the author's lyrical words and O'Neil's perfectly tuned voice. We fully believe in her portrayal of an urban professional whose life goes off the rails when she becomes recklessly infatuated with a married man. O'Neil credibly delivers Gina's fragmented reminiscences with the wit, wry self-awareness, and sense of helplessness that define the character and keep us on her side. As the novel dramatizes the tangled web of deceit that ensues, O'Neal's lilting voice depicts a new age woman in the midst of an age-old situation. D.L.G. (c) AudioFile 2011, Portland, Maine"
