Mix the lyricism of Siddons’s prose; the intense, yet restrained voice of Oscar-winning actress Jane Alexander; and the mysteries of the untamed Maine coastline—and you have the makings of a magical voyage. Widow Lily returns to the Maine island home she and her husband, Cam, loved to unlock answers to dark questions about her past. Jane Alexander's narration, especially as Lily and as the voices of Cam and Lily's deceased wisecracking cat, is flawless. And when the heartbreaking truths about Lily's life emerge, Alexander keeps the pathos under control. There is one big flaw, however. The unexpected ending to the story is disappointing.
