From the moment this production begins, narrator Katharine McEwan imbues her performance with seriousness and a sense of foreboding appropriate to main character. Faith is a 17-year-old whose older sister, Laurel, was abducted more than a decade earlier. McEwan’s British accent establishes the setting, and the voices she develops for Faith and Laurel add to their characterizations when Laurel’s sudden reappearance sets the events of the story in motion. Supporting characters are well developed textually and through McEwan’s interpretations—particularly Faith’s steadfast stepfather and her intense mother—as Faith’s carefully controlled life begins to fray in unexpected ways. The suspense never flags in this engrossing and surprising story about trauma, loyalty, and love. A.F. © AudioFile 2016, Portland, Maine [Published: OCTOBER 2016]
