Narrator Cassandra Campbell expertly guides the listener through this astonishing novel. With precision she navigates the intertwining stories of Lore, a woman who arrives at the hospital in labor alone, and Franckline, her nurse, who herself is pregnant after years of trying and loss. Campbell's narration shifts back and forth in time and between characters smoothly--moving from stories of Franckline's childhood in Haiti, her deep knowledge of childbirth, and her own fears for her pregnancy to the complicated love triangle that has left Lore alone at the hospital. Lore's labor brings a natural rhythm to the story, and Campbell's narration adds intimacy and intensity to this beautiful, shocking, and universal tale of birth.
