Fiction • 7.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2016

Ann Marie Gideon, Piter Marek, and Bahni Turpin effortlessly adopt the voices of the narrators in each of these stories, despite their widely diverse plots and characters. Gideon lends the air of a fairy tale to “Books and Roses,” which chronicles the adventures of a pair of estranged Spanish lovers. She also expertly captures the urgency of adolescent love in “Is Your Blood as Red as This?”, in which a young girl vies for the heart of a talented puppeteer. Similarly, a stepfather’s insecurities and an arsonist’s delusions come across equally well in Marek’s narrations of “'Sorry' Doesn’t Sweeten Her Tea” and “Freddy Barrandov Checks . . . In?” The adaptability of all three narrators enhances the effect of the stories’ shared plot elements. M.F.R. © AudioFile 2016, Portland, Maine [Published: APRIL 2016]
