Some listeners may be unable to appreciate this forcefully written novel about loss, innocence, and guilt. It's the story of a mountain town that faces the tragic death of a 3-year-old whose father left him in the car in winter while he tracked a deer. Little Nate got out of the car to find his father and died in the snow. The story focuses on five of the searchers who look for the boy; their innermost fears, unforgiven sins, and general inadequacies are examined in depth. Susan Denaker, who has a distinguished stage career playing suffering women, is the perfect reader for this novel. If one finds sorrow and misery morally uplifting or psychically healing, then listening to Susan Denaker's agonized storytelling will be one's cup of tea. D.L.G.
