Bernadette Dunne's narration guides readers through Halter's third installment in the Canaan trilogy, telling the story of Lilah, sister of the prophet Ezra. Halter has selected a heroine who must choose with whom to ally herself--the Persian Antinoes, a childhood friend who has become her lover, or her zealot brother. During the first part of the audio, Dunne sets up the drama, portraying the emotional intensity of both Lilah and the two men who vie for her loyalty. The second half of the story is epistolary, and Dunne successfully switches gears as she recounts Lilah's difficult travel and subsequent life in Jerusalem in tones that reveal her emotional growth and personal strength.
