When June Carver leaves L.A. to live in Bulgaria, her life unravels in a series of personal setbacks and bad decisions. Aasne Vigesaa's reading weathers the trials of June's expatriate life, as well as Annie Ward's sometimes self-conscious writing style. The story, while predictable, is entertaining, and Vigesaa's accents and character embellishments improve Ward's prose, adding dimension and depth to each character. Vigesaa reads the Balkan accents fluidly, and her narration of the Bulgarian language is beautiful; in fact, her reading of the Balkan characters makes them more compelling than her portraits of the Americans.
