Narrator Carrington MacDuffie elevates this production to a fun and motivating listen. Melody Warnick decides she is going to fall in love with her new town, Blacksburg, Virginia, after a transient lifestyle. She conducts experiments to make herself feel more connected, but the strategies all feel a bit obvious: shop locally, join a community supported agriculture group, practice random acts of kindness, volunteer, donate, hike, invite the neighbors for a potluck. With enthusiasm, authenticity, and sheer likability, MacDuffie brings to life the delight of handing out muffins on Good Neighbor Day and wearing cat ears in the town parade, as well as sensitively expressing the impact of the 2007 mass shooting at Virginia Tech on residents of Blacksburg (which occurred before Warnick moved there). You'll finish listening and then start thinking about what you can do for your community. A.B. © AudioFile 2016, Portland, Maine [Published: SEPTEMBER 2016]
