Narrator Emily Rankin's buttery voice smoothly delivers Dionne's psychological thriller. Helena, who was raised off the grid in the marshes of Michigan's Upper Peninsula, pits herself against her psychotic father, a prison escapee. Rankin makes the listener feel like a confidant as Helena graphically recounts a past full of abuse while tracking her father through marsh country in the present. Woven into the novel is a retelling of Hans Christian Andersen's original tale of the same title. Listeners will learn more about hunting, killing, and skinning animals than they might want. But the complicated tension between daughter and father, and wanting to know how she and her mother escaped the marsh years, keeps one listening.
