In Laird's audiobook, two sisters from Northern Ireland experience life-changing upheaval simultaneously--on opposite ends of the globe. One is in Ulster, and the other in Papua New Guinea. Narrator Sarah-Jane Drummey adopts a slow, deliberate pace, and her Irish accent is pleasant to listen to as she describes Liz's venture to a Papua New Guinean island to explore a new religion led by a charismatic leader. At the same time, her sister, Alison, struggles in Ulster, where she discovers the truth about her new husband's past. Drummey also uses an accent for the Papua New Guinean characters, most strikingly for Belef, the religious leader whose deep and clearly enunciated words reinforce the gravity of her convictions.
