Firstly, Bernadette Dunne is excellent reader, she simply reads without trying to change voices noticeably. The author writes some 'heavy' matter, but this one will stay with me for some time because I found much to consider. Religious belief without being chruchie in in my face with one or another belief system - more do unto others & extreme patience. The main character is well developed, although I wanted to strangle him often. About, gossip, nasty, hypercritical people, prejudice, everything we all are at one time or another. I like it much better than many of her other books.
