Narrator Gerard Doyle's Irish brogue takes listeners back in time to Tom Phelan's childhood. Phelan's stories have a way of branching out to show us the Irish town in which he grew up. The story of his birth, for example, includes his parents' courtship and a tale about the nurse who delivered him. When Doyle emphasizes a phrase, such as the words "having notions," it tells a lot about his parents and community. Each time listeners are reminded that Phelan was said to be destined for the priesthood from birth, they will be a bit more curious to hear how his life turned out. Listeners will figure out most of the Gaelic words Phelan uses, but there's also a glossary at the end. J.A.S. © AudioFile 2019, Portland, Maine [Published: OCTOBER 2019]
