As this novel opens, narrator Lamour Harrington is at a crossroads. Her personal life, it seems, lies dormant while her professional life as a landscape architect is all about growth. Now is the time for her to close that gap and move forward from childhood memories and recent personal loss. Carrington MacDuffie offers a capable reading of an audiobook lush with description. Her understated performance is ideal for a novel that crackles with details about everything from scenery to food, painting glossy portraits with words. Dialogue shifts are discreet but noticeable enough to offer direction for the listener. Straightforward and simple, MacDuffie's unaffected reading lets the author's words sparkle.
