Fiction • 19 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2015

Multiple narrators offer range and textural interest to this involving story of redemption in the Great Depression. When Layla Beck refuses to marry the man chosen by her father-the-senator, she ends up in tiny Macedonia, West Virginia, boarding with a local family as she writes up the town's history on behalf of the Federal Writers' Project. The complications that ensue are told by many people, including the family's 8-year-old daughter, a 50-something factory manager, and Layla herself. Core narrators Ann Marie Lee, Tara Sands, and Julia Whelan offer clear and consistent character readings that steer listeners through the novel's varied voices, while also highlighting the characters' diversity of experience. Another nine actors provide added depth and color. A.C.S. © AudioFile 2015, Portland, Maine [Published: JULY 2015]
