Echoes is a heartfelt story that follows two very different children as they grow up and experience life at its best and worst. Maeve Binchy worked her magic once again with Echoes - a tale of love and betrayal. Echoes will fill you with warmth and sadness in equal quantities as we follow these two characters into adulthood.
The Irish town of Castlebay is the setting for Echoes, where two local children shout about their desire to leave behind the wintertime that brings nothing but grey to the lifeless town into an echoing cave. Clare is the daughter of Tom O’Brien who runs a shop on cliff that is popular in the summertime as visitors descend on the small town and inject some life into the area. Clare is joined by the local doctor’s son David Power and we follow them as they prepare to leave Castlebay for a new life in Dublin.
However, in true Binchy style where twists are seemingly never-ending, all paths lead back to Castlebay as they learn that the grass is not as green on the other side as they had hoped!
This CD audiobook is read by Kate Binchy who ensures the book’s characters evoke as the same feelings in her listeners as they do in Maeve Binchy’s readers. Also available as an MP3 download, Echoes gives the listener a true taste of life in a small Irish town, and connects with the human feelings that dictate the fate of its residents.
