Judith West's voice resonates with tension and fear for a trio of women trapped in dangerous relationships and a web of lies. Lily and Emma are young mothers escaping abusive husbands, and Jamie is an insecure young woman, berated by her mother and sister, who impetuously embarks on a wild cross-country adventure with a handsome, dangerous stranger. Effective plot twists will keep the listener engaged. West uses regional accents, as well as pacing and volume, to effectively differentiate the many female characters. Her child voices are perfect and charming. West is a fine narrator who is controlled in scenes depicting violence and thoughtful when the women become introspective.
