Publisher's Summary

It is the early 1960s in a country village in Ireland. Caithleen Brady and her attractive friend, Baba, are on the verge of womanhood and dreaming of spreading their wings in a wider world - of discovering love and luxury and liquor and above all, fun. With bawdy innocence, shrewd for all their inexperience, the girls romp their way through convent school to the bright lights of Dublin – where Caithleen finds that suave, idealised lovers rarely survive the real world.

A very impressive book but ends too quickly.

I enjoyed the listeming but still I think one more chapter would have made a big difference. I felt frustrated by the lack of appropriate ending.

Beautiful, evocative voice of Ms O'Brian

Where does The Country Girls rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

My first audiobook, so nothing to compare but i loved it. Got it for long car journey in India, quite surreal listening and being enveloped in Ms O'Brians Irish lilt and soft atmosphere while seeing the colourful expanse of Indian life, especially in Delhi stuck in a traffic jam.
