Summary

The Misremembered Man is a beautifully rendered portrait of life in rural Ireland which charms and delights with its authentic characters and gentle humor. This vivid portrayal of the universal search for love brings with it a darker tale, heartbreaking in its poignancy.

crying but laughing

The first book I've read in a long time that could make me cry and laugh; then in its final moments held me in stop-breathing suspense. A rarity.

Engaging Tale

This was a very good book to listen to as the characters were not perfect but all major characters had normal human emotions. The Irish brogue was sometimes a little hard to understand but it also helps the telling of the story. Very good book.

A wonderful and deep book.

I thought this might be a light hearted book. In some ways it was while in others it was very deep. The main character was endearing and made you hope for the best for him. All of the characters, from the most loving to the ones you absolutely hated, were extremely well written. The story line had twists and turns. Can't say it turned out the way I had hoped, yet I completely enjoyed this book. Well narrated as well. While reading, know that the atrocities being presented happened all the way up until 1991; could still be happening. Evil presents itself where it can hide and take advantage of the innocent. As a Catholic, I was brought up that God is loving and it is unacceptable to allow evil to continue; don't say you are doing something in the name of God unless it is for a positive and loving reason.

Inspired by events

Inspired by true & horrific events endured in Irish orphanages (excerpt from author) this novel was a roller coaster of emotions between the alternating stories (with a commonality revealed at the end). I swear this could be a Hallmark Channel movie if not for the unspeakable events endured by the main character of the book.
I picked this from Amazon Unlimited with audio– which I enjoyed the recitation very much by the Irish narrator.

I’m So Glad This Is Finally Available Through Audible!

Christina McKenna creates such unique and engaging characters, many of them appear to be simple, but are actually quite wise in their own way.
I enjoy the fact that although her books are somewhat lighthearted, they do inform us of serious subjects that were actually occurring at that particular time in Irish history.
I think her books are a good introduction for readers/listeners, especially in the US, who are not as familiar with these events.
I have listened to; The Disenchanted Widow and The Godforsaken daughter.
I have been waiting a long time for a Audible to have more of her titles available. So glad they finally do!
Out of the three books that I have listen to by this author, I definitely enjoyed this narrator most.
As for who I would recommend this book to, definitely anyone who enjoys Patrick Taylor’s books.
Anyone that enjoys quirky small-town characters with a bit of mystery thrown in, will enjoy these books.
In my opinion, this authors books are informative, entertaining, inspirational and non-offensive.
