A small Irish village is mystified by what appears to be a miracle but may actually be murder in the next masterpiece from New York Times bestselling author Emma Donoghue. A small village in 1850s rural Ireland is baffled by Anna O'Donnell's fast, which began as a self-inflicted and earnest expression of faith. After weeks of subsisting only on what she calls 'manna from heaven,' the story of the 'miracle' has reached a fever pitch. Tourists flock in droves to the O'Donnell family's modest cabin hoping to witness, and an international journalist is sent to cover the sensational story. Enter Lib, an English nurse trained by Florence Nightingale who is hired to keep watch for two weeks and determine whether or not Anna is a fraud.

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.
