When Ellen Gleeson, a newspaper reporter in Philadelphia, thinks a child on a missing-child postcard might be her adopted son, her life is turned upside down. Mary Stuart Masterson's narration is uninflected, and her pacing increases with the story’s tension. Ellen just can't stop gnawing at the question of her son's adoption, especially when the birth mother and the adoption lawyer are both found dead amid suspicious circumstances. Masterson's voice expresses the crazy feelings that characterize Ellen's uncertainty over whether her adopted son is legally hers. Around and around the questions circle as the tension escalates. As Ellen's world falls apart, Masterson portrays her attempts to put the pieces back together. M.B.K. © AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine [Published: MAY 2009]
