At the bar of a grand hotel in a small Irish town sits 84-year-old Maurice Hannigan. He’s alone, as usual ­- though tonight is anything but. Pull up a stool and charge your glass, because Maurice is finally ready to tell his story. Over the course of this evening, he will raise five toasts to the five people who have meant the most to him. Through these stories - of unspoken joy and regret, a secret tragedy kept hidden, a fierce love that never found its voice - the life of one man will be powerful and poignantly laid bare.

I didn't think I would like this book very much but I ended up being completely charmed by the author's voice and the narration. We read for a book club, and a couple of members found it hard to get through the prose of the Irish dialect. I'm glad I did the Audible, because the narrator made the prose extremely easy to understand and he really made the character come alive for me. I don't think I've ever heard such a great narrator before. Great job Audible!
