Prepare for the extraordinary. Narrator Dan Bittner does an exceptional job guiding listeners through this compelling novel of love and beauty, identity and power. His narration flows like a river, interweaving the stories of brothers Finn and Sean; their Polish immigrant boarder, Roza; and the small town of Bone Gap, where they live. When Roza suddenly disappears, Finn is the only witness to her abduction. Telling the story mostly from Finn and Roza’s points of view, Bittner skillfully voices characters of all ages and backgrounds. Of special note are Roza’s soft-spoken Polish-accented English and the kidnapper’s unctuous voice, which is 50 percent charm, 20 percent oil, and 30 percent very disturbing. This is a must-listen—a consummate blend of text and voice. M.F.T. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award, 2016 Printz Award © AudioFile 2015, Portland, Maine [Published: MAY 2015]
