Arsenault's story of two young mothers living in the same house centuries apart is both eerie and mesmerizing. The events of the two time periods are both told from a first-person point of view, with a different narrator for each. Bernadette Dunn deftly conveys the loose grip that Frances, who lived in the late nineteenth century, seems to have on her sanity; Dunn knows just when to infuse her narration with a tinge of madness. The modern-day protagonist, Abby, is voiced by Nan McNamara, who does a wonderful job keeping Abby relatable as she grows convinced that something supernatural is happening in her house. Both narrators bring considerable talent to Arsenault's well-plotted book, making for a wonderful but intensely creepy listening experience.
