Fiction • 9.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2017

In this stirring story about enduring friendships and new beginnings, five women are brought together by an intriguing invitation to live out their final years together in remote Fiji. Jilly Bond's versatile narration brings out the women's surprise, contemplation, reticence, and anticipation as they ponder their life circumstances and their decision to start new lives. Each character is clearly conveyed in Bond's range of voices, which brings out the quiet fears and secrets behind their outward confidence. The cultural aspects of Fiji shine through Bond's accented characters, who convey the hardships facing the locals as well as their deep faith in God and simple daily gratitude. Bond's velvety tones capture the lush descriptions of the South Pacific, adding to the warmth and beauty of this story. M.F. © AudioFile 2017, Portland, Maine [Published: AUGUST 2017]
