Nona Conrad and her family are lured to a sporting camp in the Ozarks with the promise of summer lodging and employment. After strangers begin pursuing her to get their hands on a mysterious package sent to her by her half-brother, Nona becomes suspicious of everyone she encounters--including the camp's take-charge owner, Simon Wright. Anna Fields's pacing captures the nuances of small-town life. She individualizes each of the story's secondary characters, who are largely male. Her characterizations help listeners differentiate between the heroes and the villains, the young and the old. Throughout, Fields never loses her focus on the developing relationship between Nona and Simon and the impending "happily ever after." G.O. © AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine [Published: FEB/ MAR 08]
