Mother Suzanne Ravenel is headmistress at Mount St. Gabriel, a girls’ school in North Carolina. Having been asked to document the school's history, she becomes fixated on one tragic night that propelled many lives into a tailspin. With a credible Appalachian accent, Kimberly Farr introduces listeners to each character with precision and diversity. She breathes life into Mother Ravenel's difficulties that school year and is especially skilled at portraying the friendship between Tildy, a wily instigator, and Chloe, a new student recently orphaned by the mysterious death of her mother. This complicated relationship is pivotal in a chain of events that reverses the fortunes of many lives, including those of a pretty young teacher and the headmistress herself.
