Publisher's Summary

Ashes in the Wind interweaves the destinies of two families: the Anglo-Irish Burkes and the Catholic Irish Sullivans, beginning in 1919 with a shocking murder and the burning of the Burkes' ancestral castle in Kerry.

Childhood friends John Burke and Tomas Sullivan will find themselves on opposite sides of an armed struggle that engulfs Ireland.

Only 60 years later will the triumphant and redemptive finale of this enthralling story be played out.

    Story
    "Read this book - you will not regret it."
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Great story and really well read. I had very little knowledge of the English in Ireland until I read this yet my family are Irish and Anglo Irish. It is very moving. I bought a copy and then another on kindle and then on audible so I could read it again and switch between the two when I was driving.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The historical detail is exceptional. I loved all of it even though some of it made me cry. It is an incredibly moving book.


    What about Laurence Kennedy’s performance did you like?

    I thought he did all the accents and voices really, really well. Particularly Kate's American lilt.


    Any additional comments?

    Get it on all devices. You will appreciate it in very different ways on paper, electronic and audio.

    Story
    "Narrator spoils the story"
    If this book wasn’t for you, who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Cannot say - perhaps someone who has no idea of regional accents or who is not bothered by the fact that they are wrong.


    If you’ve listened to books by Christopher Bland before, how does this one compare?

    This was the first one


    Would you be willing to try another one of Laurence Kennedy’s performances?

    No as I thought that the story was totally spoilt for me by his narration. I do not believe his accents were good - and his Geordie accent was abominable. He even mispronounced Alnwick!
