Hannah, May and Eleanor are sisters whose early life in Dublin with their middle class parents, has prepared them for a comfortable future of marriage, children and servants. Further north, Mary and Cecilia are also sisters, struggling to make a living in the linen mills of Belfast amid rising political tension. The lives of all the sisters are destined to unfold in ways that none of them could have imagined and "Another Kind of Life" is the intricately crafted tale of how their lives entwine, against the backdrop of the rapidly changing Ireland of the late 19th century. In her eagerly awaited new novel Catherine Dunne returns to the themes of family ties, love and loyalty which she has delineated so finely in her earlier work but this time she opens out her canvas to tell us a much wider story.

Dunne cleverly creates two very different Irish families, whose lives eventually intersect amid the growing political turmoil in Belfast. Characters are appealing, and both sides are evenly portrayed, giving a depth that is often absent in historical fiction. Narrator Dearbhla Molloy captures each accent and nuance, adding her personal touch to maintain listener interest. Dunne's fine writing is enhanced by Molloy's excellent interpretation.
