    Determined to reevaluate her life, Jude Murray flees America to take refuge in Faerie Hill Cottage, where she immerses herself in the study of Irish Folklore and discovers hope for the future in the magic of the past.

    Overall

    I have read this book before and enjoyed it very much, the writer's feel for and love of Ireland speaking to me and taking me back to the green hills I love so much. Having thoroughly enjoyed all three of the Born In series audios, I meant to continue my little mental vacations with this series and thought the reader would be okay from the sample, even though it only contained the American main character. Alas, much to my dismay when I settled down on a long flight to enjoy it, the reader's version of every Irish female turned out to be a rather shrill version of the Lucky Charms leprechan. To anyone who has spent any real amount of time in Ireland and loves the beautiful, gentle rhythm of the Irish voices, this reader will not sound like anyone they have ever met there, and her strained cadence actually interfered with expressive reading. They should have used the reader who did the Born In series again, as his voice was easy to listen to and his accents smooth and accurate. I will NOT be listening to the rest of this series unless I read it aloud to myself, that's for sure!
