Publisher's Summary

When Dr. Richard Buckley returns home to his wife and beloved hometown of Dunderrig, his mind is wearied by the ravages of The Great War. Disillusioned by the horror and pointlessness of battle, his civilian transition strains more than just his state of mind, as his marriage crumbles beneath the weight of duty.

Out of the rubble of this doomed relationship, twins James and Juliet arrive - born into an uncertain and hostile new world. Against the backdrop of this idyllic town, this story takes you to the furthest reaches of Nazi occupied Europe. James and Juliet come of age in a world on the brink of chaos, where the remnants of rebellion at home have snowballed into the horrors of yet another world war.

Historically rich and moving, the tale of two children from the Irish countryside caught in the throes of wartime Europe is a testament to the strength of the human spirit and its willingness to endure. Experience this critical time in history like never before in So Much Owed.

So disappointed

Would love to exchange this book, but the site won't let me. I gave it a second chance months after the first try, just to be fair, but I can't listen to that voice. It's like finger nails on a chalk board to me.

Great Story and Great Narration

The characters really came alive for me. They were well developed and believable. I am always amazed by stories of how wars took such a heavy toll on the British and Irish. Michael Healy did a marvelous job with all the accents. I will definitely buy more books with him as the narrator.
