One of those books that I just can't see what all the fuss is about.

The main protagonist, Lib, is intolerably prim and rigid. I also found the story to be very slow. Otherwise, a creative story.

Difficult subject matter which is only made worse by the reader of this audio. Although I appreciate the use of different voice tones and levels of English and Irish accents, some of audio was difficult to understand. Additionally, many times when the reader spoke in a whisper it was so faint, I couldn't hear her at all. May be a better read than listen.

The crux of this story surrounds what everyone in this small Irish village believe to be a child's amazing ability to survive without food. Her faith and religious beliefs would have you believes that she is existing solely on Spiritual Manna from Heaven; a food source provided by her god. An English nurse is summoned by a panel of Catholic leaders who want to verify this. She is given two weeks to prove it beyond a shadow of doubt. What she discovers changes her in ways she cannot imagine.
