Fans of Joanne Harris's novels will anticipate details that convey sensory experiences and a sense of place. While Harris creates a strongly evoked island world in this title, Anne Cater's voice is so soft that it’s sometimes hard to distinguish which character is speaking. While the main character, Mado, is a spirited young woman, Cater overplays her as an ingenue. Furthermore, Cater's muffled delivery makes it difficult to pay attention to which character is speaking.
