    It is the early 1960s in a country village in Ireland. Caithleen Brady and her attractive friend, Baba, are on the verge of womanhood and dreaming of spreading their wings in a wider world - of discovering love and luxury and liquor and above all, fun. With bawdy innocence, shrewd for all their inexperience, the girls romp their way through convent school to the bright lights of Dublin – where Caithleen finds that suave, idealised lovers rarely survive the real world.

    Story

    This is an excellent story, and quite an interesting view into life in an earlier time in Ireland. Unfortunately, the author's narration makes the experience almost unbearable, with her long pauses and constant gulping breaths. It is really a shame. I really wished she had let someone else do the reading as I am having a hard time enjoying her wonderful writing and find myself only able to listen to a little at a time, before I can't stand it anymore. Do yourself a favor and get a hard copy of this fascinating glimpse into a different time and place.
