Sara Louise Bradshaw, or Wheeze, is a twin, but her sister is far brighter and prettier than she can ever hope to be. God, she thinks, has marked her with his especial disfavor, and in the lean times of the Depression, with little enough to go around, Sara Louise has just about the least. Nevertheless, she's a crabber on the Chesapeake and a good waterman's daughter with a fierce desire to make it in the world. Christina Moore reads Sara Louise's story with the same dogged energy and spite expressed by the author. Moore brings to vivid life Sara's droll friend, Coll, and her testy grandmother. But most of all, she manages to gracefully ease us into Sara Louise's joyous awakening when, after a life that has for so long seemed like a betrayal, light dawns at last.
