The downloadable, digital audiobook edition of Colm Tóibín's new novel, read by Fiona Shaw.
It is the 1960s and Nora Webster is living with her two young sons in a small town on the east coast of Ireland. The love of her life, Maurice, has just died. Nora must learn how to forge a new life for herself, how to give her sons a future as she tries to hold onto the past. And, as Nora returns to memories of the happiness of her early marriage something more painful begins to intrude: memories of her own mother and what brought about the terrifying distance between them.

Mediocre story of an Irish widow
I found the story unengaging with little to recommend it other than the decent narrator.
- E.M. Biggs
Slow moving and tedious
I had to force myself twice to go back to this book and continue listening. The details of Nora Webster's life were so boringly ordinary, I couldn't imagine why the author had thought it a story worth writing in the first place.
The narrator was dreadful - especially in the men's characters. Her pitch was irritating, her tone inappropriate to the content of the speech and her stress quite unnatural.
I only bought this book as I had enjoyed Brooklyn so much, but I soon regretted it. Even my own life is more interesting than Nora Webster's and that is not saying much.
Recommend for those who get a special kick out of watching paint dry
