Narrator Greg Whalen's masterful performance sounds like multiple narrators as he depicts a group of firemen and a troubled marriage. From the sounds of pulse-pounding sirens to the suspense of a car caught in the path of an oncoming train, the story’s tension is unrelenting. Dedicated and courageous fireman Caleb Holt is soon to be divorced because of his extramarital affair. Whalen’s portrayal of Caleb's wife's feelings of rejection is especially believable—listeners should have Kleenex handy. He portrays Caleb's confusion and remorse with subtle vocal tones. When Caleb’s father suggests that he try a forty-day experiment called "The Love Dare," he’s reluctant—until he learns the program saved his parents’ marriage. Powerful characterizations and authentic sound effects make this an engaging audio experience. G.D.W. © AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine [Published: APRIL 2009]
