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.

one if my favorite

This was one of my favorite stories by Jean Grainger. The intrigue is always an awesome twist to an already rich story.

Outstanding story and performance

First of all, this is my favorite Jean Grainger book of the 6 or 7 I’ve experienced. They are all fantastic but this is the best. I would to see a follow up novel involving the same characters and their progeny. The performance by Michael Healy was perfect. His accents, and especially his French, were spot on, grounded in warm Irish tones of calm gravitas.

Awful Narrator!!!

I am trying to make my way through this book because the storyline has merit. But, did those who produced this narration even listen to the narrator?!? He is plain awful! He sounds like he is totally bored with reading the book. I would exchange this title, but the site isn’t letting me. I am going to try to continue. I wish I had read the reviews before purchasing this title!

Worst audiobook narrator ever.

The story was interesting with good characters but the narrator ruined it! He sounded like a bored parent reading to a child. He changed his accents according to who was speaking but rarely got them right.

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.
