Narrator Jessica Almasy's warm, reassuring candor is a welcome companion during this captivating coming-of-age mystery. After her grandfather's death, Theodora Tenpenny uncovers a potentially famous painting. She must use her wits and rely on some newfound friends as she attempts to track down the painting's origins. Almasy's interpretations of Fitzgerald's spirited characters are engrossing. Nuanced, confident portrayals draw listeners into Theodora's world as she and her companions delve into the events of WWII, art history, and long-buried family secrets. Pacing is key in a story with so many interwoven parts, and Almasy's delivery lends urgency where needed but slows to allow particularly significant moments to unfurl.
