Romantic Irish story !

Good story showing a insightful part of history that the Irish people took t in, for good or bad.

I will be interested to know more about this subject, and the influence the Irish had in South Africa.,

Just couldn’t get in to it

I’ve listened to a lot of Gilman’s other books and loved them. I just couldn’t get in to this one and gave up after an hour or so. The characters were confusing, the narrator unclear and the storyline simply dull. Very disappointing. If I could send it back I would.

Good book but difficult to listen to

This book has some of the hallmarks of the other Gilman books but I found it difficult to listen to as the narrator used the same tone for scene and character speech.
