Everything in This Country Must by Colum McCann

Please select:

Performed by Amy Ryan

The rescue of an endangered horse is colored by the owner’s tragic past and the Irish “troubles.” A gut-wrenching story, beautifully told. It starts right in the middle of the action as the narrator and her father try to save a drowning horse.
