Cassandra Campbell narrates this incredible story of motherhood, love, moral responsibility, and survival. Joan and her 4-year-old son are enjoying the last few moments before closing time at the zoo when shots ring out and her idyllic afternoon becomes a nightmare. Narrating primarily from Joan's perspective, Campbell captures her horror, determination to survive, and devotion to her son. Campbell also perfectly captures the inner thoughts and outer reactions of each of the other characters in the novel--both good and evil. At times, it can be difficult to listen to the violence in the story, but, ultimately, the bond between mother and child and the question of our moral obligation to others take center stage. This fast paced audiobook will remain with listeners long after the story ends. K.S.M. © AudioFile 2017, Portland, Maine [Published: AUGUST 2017]
