Using beautiful prose, Elizabeth Strout tells the story of minister Tyler Caskey and his congregation in a rural New England town. Gerrianne Raphael reads Strout's fluid and candidly human dialogue with a distinct, believable, and appropriate voice-lovable characters sound warm and genuine when speaking while those with shallow hearts appear as such. As events unfold around them, and Tyler and his daughter struggle to find their equilibrium after the death of his wife, Raphael expertly conveys the frustration and despair of the characters. The whole package is well done, with the exception of the abridgment, which wraps up a sticky mess a little too cleanly and quickly. H.L.S. © AudioFile 2007, Portland, Maine [Published: FEB/ MAR 07]
