Loved this book - great characters, and brilliant look at how we are shaped and respond to the challenges in our lives.
Aoife McMahon is an absolute legend! She has such a nuanced interpretation of the text - and an unparalleled value add for every book I’ve heard her read.

This book is a song to nature and indomitable spirit, what a wondrous world it created - so sad it ended.

This book was an interesting insight into a person driven to fulfill a strong vision. At first I thought I didn't want as much minutiae or detail as I was getting - but as it moved along I felt like this was an honest, genuine - setting the record straight, journey. The Boss he is and was and will remain.... this book has a great beating heart.

Great story, but 0 out of 10 for Aussie accent

Really enjoyed this story. The interwoven story lines were beautifully done. The dedication to art and artists was inspiring. As for the read, overall I liked it, with a big BUT - that had to be the worst Australian accent impression I've heard and it was very off putting. It would have been better to not go there at all - it confused me, I thought we'd gone to South Africa for some reason or cockney England.

I enjoyed this honest, raw and humble book.
The exploration of self which in turn leads to real consideration of the realities of our parents' experiences and how they play out in our psyche is beautifully told.
Although we are taken to many dark places of the heart and soul,
This was an uplifting listen, mostly because the writer cares and questions the makings of an authentic life. Refreshing in its enquiry into what is actually important.
I had the feeling that there was an alchemy of feeling and experience occurring within this book - I felt witness to a transformation.
The line, probably not correctly quoted, but as I recall it 'my parents - the two great loves of my life' .... absolutely beautiful in the context of this story.
Worth listening to the writer as the reader too, another interesting layer.

chiefly about a woman in the words of a man
